CGC FN+: 6.5
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.
Collectors looking for a good buy and bang for their buck will surely delight in this professionally restored copy, whose vivid cover colors fairly pop off the page. Golden Age comics have begun roaring back into collectors' consciousness, after years of
Silver Age keys gaining ground. Savvy collectors and smart investors have been quietly snapping up restored Golden Age keys in the meantime, driving the value of these books higher and higher each year. As the prices of unrestored high grade copies shoot into the stratosphere, restored copies gain prestige and momentum, especially among comics buyers looking to own a piece of history without breaking the bank. Expect this book, and the other restored Golden Age books in this auction, to inspire fierce bidding.
