THE UNBEARABLE WEIGHT OF MASSIVE TALENT Star Nicolas Cage Asks For Help Retrieving His Stolen Comic Books

Nicolas Cage is a huge comic book fan, but his collection was stolen in the early 2000s. Doing the rounds to promote The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent, the actor asks for help tracking them down...

In 2000, Nicolas Cage's house was burgled and a number of valuable comic books were stolen in the process. Among them were Action Comics #1 (Superman's first appearance) and Detective Comics #27 (Batman's first appearance), and after years of investigations, the actor was finally reunited with the former over a decade later. Unfortunately, the rest have yet to be found. 

It's a story worthy of its own movie, and in a social media post to promote The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent, the actor has asked for help in tracking them down. 

"I just want to get my comic books back," Cage said, describing them as "treasures that are in the ten million dollar range." He'd add that the money generated from selling them could be donated to charity, and the video even has a tipline number (555-N1CS-STUFF). We've tried it, and it doesn't work, but this might jump prompt someone to come forward with any information they have.

Cage's love of comic books has seen him take on a number of roles in the Marvel and DC Universes, including Spider-Man Noir in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse and Superman in Tim Burton's failed Superman Lives. He also starred in two Ghost Rider movies and played Big Daddy in Kick-Ass.

"Nicolas Cage and Pedro Pascal are an absolute riot in The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent," we said in our recent review. "an early film of the year candidate that spotlights the immense abilities of both actors. Just don’t call it a comeback."
