ACTION COMICS-1938 #2
CGC VF-: 7.5
Superman wasn't a sure thing. So uncertain were DC Comics (then National Periodicals) that the second cover to the Action series, prepared before the initial issue hit the stands, didn't even feature the Man of Steel on its cover. As a result, Action 2 is arguably even scarcer than the first, the number of copies on the CGC census are less than half that of the mighty Action 1. This comic, which was once considered a throwaway, worth only pocket change of the era, and intended to pass time for only a moment, has been preserved through the passage of many decades.
The stunning Leo O'Mealia cover design featuring an unusually subtle color palette is sure to please the winner of this upper-middle grade classic. The book, without question, will be the sleeper of the auction. The one book you will kick yourself in coming years for not being the winning bidder.
Overstreet Guide 2016 VF- (7.5) value = $61,965.
