1st Superman by Siegel and Shuster; possibly the most famous and most important comic ever published!
The Jon Berk Collection
CGC FN-: 5.5
The most important comic book in the history of comic books. This is the introduction of the archetype of all other heroes to come. Superman transcends comic books and pop culture. He is an icon of Truth, Justice and The American Way! Created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, Superman is quite possibly the most recognizable fictional character in the world. The creation of two struggling sci-fi fans from the Rust Belt, the Man of Steel became an instant icon to depression-era readers, and easily transformed into an icon of American spirit and spunk during the brutal days of WWII. Since then, he has lasted as both a beloved character and a symbol of modern hope and vigor, making this first appearance not just a piece of comics' history, but of American history as well.

Action Comics #1 is the Mount Everest of comicbook collecting and copies rarely pop up for sale. The success of the film, Superman v. Batman: Dawn of Justice, and the excitement surrounding the upcoming Justice League film has increased interest in the book, not that it ever needed it mind you. This very attractive copy is an essential requirement for high-end collectors and remains one of the most valuable and stable investments in comicbook collecting. It may be some time before another copy comes along and by then you might be priced out. Take the flying leap now.

Overstreet Guide 2016 FN- (5.5) value = $467,500.
