CGC FA/GD: 1.5
The first name in superheroes has always been Superman. Look, up in the sky, it's a bird, it's a plane, it's...Superman! Those words have been used to identify the character for decades and the big red "S" is one of the most easily recognized symbols in the world.
As one of the top Golden Age keys, this issue features the origin of DC's most well-known and best-loved hero! Also often overlooked is the historical importance of this book, which showcases three of the most important supporting characters in the Superman pantheon: Ma and Pa Kent, and Lois Lane.
Created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, Superman has enjoyed decades of popularity and been featured in cartoons, serials, movies, and television shows. World-renowned and more popular than ever, Superman will make his silver screen comeback in 2013.
This is another great buy in this auction -- a Golden Age key that will appeal to investors looking for more bang for their buck. The cover image is actually very nice on this copy, with strong reds and striking blues, and should hit the sweet spot for anyone looking to start or enhance their Golden Age key collection.
