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.

Here is an affordable copy of the book that started it all! While noted as brittle pages, this is, in our opinion the least brittle book of any book we have seen CGC graded brittle. I personally held this book in my hands before it was encapsulated and flipped through every page with no problem whatsoever. If you win this book, I think you should have the restoration on the cover re-done and the pages reinforced.

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.
Recently ComicConnect.com was contacted by a couple from the New England area who had uncovered a piece of what they believed to be the front cover of Action #1. The experts at ComicConnect.com confirmed it was truly an original part of an Action Comics #1 and CGC encapsulated it after determining it was what they have termed 3/5 of the front cover. 

While the logo is missing the piece features the most memorable part of Action #1, the image of Superman about to throw the car! This is the perfect item for the collector who might not spend six figures for a comic but wants a piece of comic history-quite literally.

The consignor said he was reading USA Today and came across the article about the 6.0 Action Comics #1. He recognized the image of Superman hurling the car and recalled seeing it in his father s old things.

Unfortunately, his dad had passed on some years ago, but he decided to rummage through his dad s keepsakes and came across this item. As it turned out his dad had been an avid comic collector in the 30s and 40s. During WW II, he left for Europe to fight in the Army and upon his return found his parents had thrown out his collection. He was very upset. It is believed that the father had somehow hung onto the cover and kept it with his postcard collection and that is exactly where his son found it.

ComicConnect.com CEO, Stephen Fishler stated recently, "I've seen coverless copies of Action #1, a front cover...never."

2nd app. of Superman; rare!! (7/38)
Rockford Copy
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.

Joe Shuster, Bernard Baily art; 3rd app. of Superman (8/38)
Leo O'Mealia is remembered chiefly for his baseball cartooning in the 1940s and 1950s; his art hangs in a place of honor in the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown. Comics collectors, however, know him for his rousing, cinematic covers on Adventure, Action, and other anthology titles in the pre-Superman period of DC's history. In an age when pulp was king and testosterone-filled exploits were guaranteed newsstand smashes, O'Mealia's punchy style proved perfect for the times. While this might not be his best-known cover, it's one of his most accomplished. The cover to Action 3 is a dazzling and daring work that feels almost like a frame from a film, with rising action caught at just the right moment, and with a startlingly off-center design featuring deliberately skewed composition that grabs the viewer and refuses to let go. One of the last great "pulp" covers before the hero boom, and a justifiably revered image.

Census Rank 2nd Highest Graded, Restored Holder, Extensive Professional Restoration, Off-White to White pages, color touch, pieces added, tear seals, reinforced
4th Superman; classic O'Mealia cover (9/38)
In a way, it's a good thing that DC cautiously kept the Man of Steel off these early Action covers, as it allowed great illustrators like Leo O'Mealia one last hurrah, a chance to show off the chops that kept DC's pre-Kryptonian comics flying off of shelves. Firmly a part of the tradition of American illustration traceable through the pulp cover craze back to the early days of yellow journalism and penny dreadful covers, this stunning cover image stands in stark contrast to the bright, yet crude imagery quickly overtaking the newsstands. Dramatic, finely detailed, and richly observed, this evocative imagery was soon to be wiped off the stands by the caped copycats soon to follow in the wake of Superman's shocking and unprecedented success. This early appearance of the Man of Steel is insanely rare, and appearances of this scarce issue tend to send collectors into a bidding frenzy.

rare!! Superman by Siegel and Shuster
In "The Big Scoop" Lois Lane plays a nasty prank on the hapless Clark Kent causing him to miss the last train to the scene of a dam collapse, which he easily attends anyway, because he's Superman after all. Upon his arrival he holds the dam together long enough to save many lives, but Lois ends up getting swept away in a raging flood, a scenario which was referenced to great effect in 1978's Superman, starring Christopher Reeve and Margot Kidder. This book presents the fifth appearance of Superman ever, as well as the first kiss between the Man of Steel and Lois Lane. Add that to the scarcity of this comic, in any condition, and a perfect storm of value and desirability is baked in.

Joe Shuster cover/art; 2nd Superman cover! rare in any grade (12/38)
Although Superman proved to be a smash hit from day one, DC didn't have any Man of Steel covers lined up for the character until six months after his debut, relegating him to interiors while wrapping the issues in the illustrative, punchy, pulp-style covers that had graced both New Adventure and More Fun up to that point. Action 7 is the second-ever appearance of Superman on a comic book cover. Joe Shuster's perfectly understated style sets the mood for the character's early appearances, his bold strength and boisterous energy perfectly match the simplified lines and stark, evocative landscape that work in perfect unity with Siegel's punchy dialogue and rapid-fire plotting, these elements all come together to give the series an unmatched kinetic energy.
This is a tough book in any grade, restored or not -- and this moderately retouched copy is an attractive option for anyone needing a solid copy of this scarce book without breaking the bank! Overstreet 2011 FN Guide Value: $22,059

3rd Superman cvr by Shuster; RARE!!
Atlantic City Copy
Highest Graded
The first World War was seared into people's mass consciousness in the early 20th Century. Millions were traumatized by the unprecedented horrors and loss of life the war delivered in such a short time. This trauma explains the introversion the American public experienced concerning involvement in the new conflict brewing across Europe in the late 1930s. Comic covers like this, in which Superman seems angry at war as a concept rather than at war with any specific people, were common in the pre-Pearl Harbor days. The cover image is a far cry from the beefy, smiling patriot soon to grace post-Pearl Harbor DC covers, and still startles with its raw emotion and crude power. This is yet another extremely rare early Superman comic that commands top dollar on the Golden Age market.
This killer copy of Action Comics #10 from the Atlantic City Collection is the very definition of ultra rare, certified 9.0 VF/NM by CGC, with the second highest grade on the census being 7.0. The colors on this copy are amazing! The red looks like it came off a firetruck. Simply brilliant!

Since 1984, the owners and staff of ComicConnect have only sold eight copies of this historic comic, with none unrestored above VG-. Throw out the guide on this gem.

Guardineer cover (4/39)
It was no accident that Siegel and Shuster gave their hero an alter ego of an earnest reporter. In the cynical, depression-battered days of the late 1930s, it was assumed that anyone running a big business or holding a position of authority was somehow running a racket, and the only ones who could expose their chicanery were the hard-bitten newsmen who turned the morning edition into a megaphone for the forgotten man. Thus, early Supes tales such as these pit our intrepid Kryptonian not against mad scientists or alien menaces, but against the money men, corporate fatcats, and corrupt politicians that dead-broke comics readers assumed were responsible for everything that had gone rotten in America. This issue features one of the last non-Superman covers, another gorgeous pulp-derived beauty from the great Fred Guardineer.

classic Superman train cover by Shuster; RARE!! centerfold is ad for Superman #1
Atlantic City Copy
Highest Graded
Note the centerfold ad: barely a year after his debut, the Man of Steel has become such an undeniable sensation that National has decided to capitalize on his fame by giving him his own solo title. Not that they're pulling him from Action Comics, mind you -- in fact, they're putting him on the cover of the comic with increasing frequency, no longer relying on repurposed covers from their other anthology titles and tried-and-true pulp-style covers. Superman is clearly here to stay, and it is announced with this legendary Shuster cover, a fine example of the strong, solidly built imagery that typified these early, more muscular adventures of the incredibly popular hero. Not only notable for the announcement of the character's upcoming solo series, this issue also boasts the debut of Superman's first real arch-nemesis, the Ultra-Humanite. Clearly inspired by villains from Saturday serials and Republic B-thrillers, this wheelchair-bound mad genius proves a cunning rival for our super-protagonist, in an debut appearance so thickly plotted and full of constant cliffhangers it practically bursts at the seams (and may have been a repurposed set of daily strips, as with the first few Action Superman appearances). A truly historic issue no matter which way you slice it, and, as with so many of these early Action issues, extremely rare.
This near perfect 72 year old copy of Action Comics #13 is from the Atlantic City Collection and ranks among the rarest and most sought after jewels of the Golden Age. The colors on this book are shockingly bright. The corners are as sharp as a razor. I don't think a better copy could be found!
