NAT060 - (US-Comic-Book-Auction) HARTFORD, Conn. x-17s. A mild-mannered civil attorney in Connecticut who is known by some as a comic book-collecting super hero is about to display his collection of more than 18-thousand books at the Metropolis Gallery in New York City. After the show, Jon Berk is going to sell his treasures in an online auction at ComicConnect-dot-com starting in May.

TAG: Berk's collection includes Action Comics Number 1, featuring the first appearance of Superman, and Detective Comics Number 27, which features the first appearance of Batman.
