A rare Superman comic specially commissioned by a British property tycoon to mark his son’s 13th birthday is to be auctioned.

Godfrey Bradman paid £10,000 in 1988 to get the DC Comics team to make a special edition featuring his son Daniel as well as friends and family.

Around 200 copies of the comic, entitled “This Island Bradman”, were printed.

It is regarded as the most specialised custom-created comic made by the team.

One of the editions is expected to fetch up to £2,000 when it goes under the hammer at Catherine Southon Auctioneers and Valuers Ltd in Surrey on November 20.

An anonymous former worker for the Bradman family who was given the comic as a gift is selling it.

The worker said:

I worked for the Bradman family 25 years ago and, because I had young children at the time, they very kindly gave me a copy of Daniel’s special Superman comic.

I completely forgot about it though.

It was only when one of my friends mentioned that she had seen something similar online and had remembered that I had talked about the comic at the time that I went through my stored-away boxes and found it again.

The comic was written by David Levin, drawn by Curt Swan and the inking was by Angelo Torres.
