LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles police say a rare comic featuring the debut of Superman that re-surfaced last week is the same one stolen from Nicolas Cage more than a decade ago.

Detective Don Hrycyk says an investigation into how the comic was stolen and found is underway. It is unclear whether the copy of Action Comics No. 1 will be returned directly to the Oscar-winning actor.

Hrycyk says Cage accepted an insurance payout after its theft in 2000.

In March 2010, a copy of the 1938 comic sold from $1.5 million. The Ventura County Star first reported the discovery and said that the comic was recently found in a storage locker in the San Fernando Valley, which is north of Los Angeles.
