MACON, Ga. (AP) - Rare “Justice League” and “X-Men” comic books valued at more than $200,000 have been stolen from a central Georgia store.

Will Peavy, owner of Comics Plus in Macon tells WMAZ-TV (https://on.wmaz.com/1ZxBZ0C) that someone broke into the store Wednesday night. The burglar used a crowbar to get in the front door, then ripped out and cut wires to the alarm system.

Peavy says the burglar stole the store’s safe containing $2,200 in cash and more than $200,000 worth of comic books.

The intruder took the first eight copies of “Justice League of America” from 1963. Peavy says the collection was “graded,” or authenticated, and has a value of about $100,000.

Also taken were the first 20 issues of “X-Men,” also graded and with a six-figure value.
