origin of Superman; 1st four Action stories retold; one of the most famous first issues of the Golden Age!
CBCS F/VF: 7.0
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 return next summer in Batman Vs. Superman.

As one of the top Golden Age keys, this issue features the origin of DC's most well-known and best-loved hero, Superman! As the collecting community broadens, and owners of key books hold fast to their treasures, restored books continue to rise in prominence, and this copy of one of the top-five key books is sure to take advantage of the trend, Superman #1 remains one of the cornerstones of the industry, and one of the most-wanted of all comics.

Overstreet Guide 2016 F/VF (7.0) value = $390,000.
