1st Superman by Siegel and Shuster; possibly the most famous and most important comic ever published!
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.

Swan cover; origin & 1st app. Supergirl; 1st app. Metallo; Supergirl TV series!!
The notion of a female answer to Superman had been tried out a few times before this debut appearance, with various one-offs and stunts or imaginary stories allowing DC's staff writers try out new angles on the strip, which was seemingly running out of steam and ideas. The Superman TV series was still running, however, and merchandising for the character was as much a cash cow as ever, so the exhausted creative staff were willing to try anything to keep the flagship DC title chugging along. As Superman had never really had a sidekick like Batman's Robin or Captain America's Bucky, it was decided to try adding a little female flavor to the mix, and, based on the strong reader response to a recent Super-Girl one-off tryout, veteran scribe Otto Binder teamed with regular Superman artist Al Plastino to solidify the Man of Steel's family tree with a teenaged girl from Krypton. The results were an immediate smash, with overwhelmingly positive reader response, a massive increase in sales, and a whole new set of themes and stories for the creative staff to work with thanks to the perky, smiling blonde new arrival. Young girls especially were delighted to finally have a super-powered counterpart to Kal-El, and the character of Kara implanted herself so completely into the Superman mythos that it's amazing to think she wasn't introduced until twenty years into the character's series. The rabid response to this issue led to copies being passed along, borrowed, and read heavily, resulting in a startlingly low number of surviving copies, even by the scarcity standards of tough-to-find 1950s DC's. Coupled with the heavy demand for this historic key and the still-feverish fan base for the Girl of Steel, this is among the top-three toughest DC Silver Age keys to track down. With a brand new television series accelerating its exposure, copies are snapped up almost the minute they hit the market, making this a no-brainer investment key, and a must-have for serious DC collectors.

origin the Flash retold; 1st solo Flash title (Summer 1941)
The Flash Comics imprint was developed as an anthology title, just in case the new character crashed and burned, but Jay ended up racing into the hearts of millions of readers. Having proven his popularity in Flash Comics, Jay Garrick, the most famous of Golden Age speedsters, was granted his own quarterly solo title, All-Flash. The few folks unfamiliar with the Crimson Comet were brought up to speed in this first issue with an origin recap, and were entertained by a comic full of solo Flash goodness. The title proved durable enough to enjoy a healthy run throughout the war period, and shortly thereafter, cemented the Flash's status as one of DC's top draws.˙ŭ˙ŭ

˙ŭ˙ŭInterestingly, the title of the Flash's new solo venture was the result of a readership contest. National Periodicals (DC Comics) felt they needed to distinguish the new book from the already existing Flash Comics, and some canny young reader decided to merge the names of Flash Comics and another anthology featuring the character, All-Star Comics, hence, the name ˙ŭ˙ŭAll-Flash Quarterly was born.

classic Human Torch/Sub-Mariner/Capt. America Schomburg cvr
Timely took no chances in promoting their top-line heroes and plugged them into every comic they possibly could, leading to the inevitable anthology all-star-mashup title. With Captain America, Human Torch, and Sub-Mariner under one banner and graced by a classically unrestrained Schomburg cover, this debut issue was an instant success. These popular WWII superheroes acted as a magnet to war-weary readers hungry for excitement. This cover image eventually became an iconic classic, one of the most famous of WWII comics propaganda pieces and a firm favorite of the army of collectors that keep Schomburg's reputation alive. Much has been said about the influence Schomberg had on his peers and the look of Golden Age comics in general, and this cover is no exception, while the book has obviously been read and enjoyed over the years, the handling has barely affected the frenzied cover illustration. The chromatic scheme still shines through, and the blues, reds, and flesh tones of Timely's Golden Age trio still jolt the senses. This classic assault on Hitler's Berchtesgaden is sure to assume a place of honor amidst some amazing collection once the hammer drops.

origin and 1st app. Wonder Woman; one of the scarcest major Golden Age keys!
DC's Big Three were blessed with auspicious beginnings. All Star Comics 8 did for Wonder Woman what Action 1 and Detective 27 did for Superman and Batman. America's Guardian Angel was an instant hit who served as a graphic representative of the women's war effort during WWII, predating Rosie the Riveter by two years. Her origin was presented as the daughter of Hippolyta, who rescued fighter pilot Steve Trevor, whose pursuit of a Nazi spy ended with his crash landing on Paradise Island. Men are forbidden on the island, but, in divining his past, Hippolyta recognized that he was a hero worthy of sacrifice. The Amazons decided to aid the war effort and defeat the evil Nazis. Diana is ultimately chosen for the assignment.

Kirby cvr; Ditko art; origin & 1st app. Spider-Man; 1st Uncle Ben & Aunt May
This is the Silver Age equivalent of Action Comics 1: an historic, game-changing key issue that acts as a pivot point from what came before, and what came after. The creation of Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, this radical new concept featured a passive, neurotic, everyman hero; an unusually emotionally charged origin story touching on issues of mortality and family tragedy; a worldview grounded solidly in a real, recognizable universe obviously our own; and open-ended storytelling that demanded and rewarded close reading and regular readership. This milestone comic has also proven to be the success story of comics investment, growing rapidly and unstoppably in value and becoming one of the few completely bulletproof investments in recent times. This is THE Silver Age comic.

Ditko cvr/art; origin retold; 1st Chameleon; 1st J. Jonah Jameson; Fantastic Four cover
Where previous heroes had their origin stories based in spectacular events, dramatic twists, and high tragedy, Stan Lee and Steve Ditko firmly planted their flagship character's feet in the hard ground of daily life in the big city. Shy, insecure, lower-class teen, Peter Parker, drawn to scrawny imperfection by Ditko, transforms into a freakish, wise-cracking daredevil, tortured by guilt over the loss of his father figure, all while scrambling to make a quick buck from his sudden brush with semi-greatness. Spider-Man's first appearance in Amazing Fantasy 15 was like nothing anyone had seen before and was an instant success, leading to a hurriedly prepared solo debut issue. Note the use of the Fantastic Four on the cover as insurance, as their group exploits were Marvel's one real box-office draw at the time, and the hungry, ambitious Lee was taking no chances. One of the most important comics of the Silver Age, and the book that proved the Marvel Age of comics was no fluke.
