"Action No. 1" is a heist comedy from "Reno 911!" creators Robert Ben Garant and Thomas Lennon. The story revolves around a group of nerds who attempt to steal Nicolas Cage's copy of Action Comics No. 1, the landmark 1938 comic that introduced the world to the Man of Steel. The theft of Cage's comic made real-world headlines in 2000. The issue was missing until 2011, when it was discovered among the contents of an abandoned storage locker. It sold for a record $2.1 million at auction in November. To comic-book fans, the story of the book's theft and its ultimate recovery is as thrilling as any tale of a stolen Monet or Degat.
