Apparently, several comics and art fetched record prices during the pandemic. One of the most significant buys of all time in the pandemic era was a comic worth $3.180 million. This is about P155 million. It is a comic from the year 1938. 

This is where Superman first appeared, and to date, it is just the 3rd most expensive comic of all time.

Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster introduced Superman on "Action Comics No.1." The DC comics went into Heritage Auctions on Thursday. 

The particular comics were popularly called “the Rocket Copy” because the cover features a rocket stamp placed by the 13-year-old who bought the issue from a newsstand way back in 1938. 

Another auction house, Goldin, purchased the copy. “It was fun bidding and winning a $3 mil + item. I know it’s going to a great home!” Goldin’s Ken Goldin said in his tweet.

If you wonder what the more expensive comics than this were, it was the copy that first featured Spider-Man. "Amazing Fantasy No.15" was sold just last September for $3.6 Million or about P180 Million.
