origin of Superman; 1st four Action stories retold; one of the most famous first issues of the Golden Age!
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.

full pg ad for 1939 NY World's Fair Comics; rare!!
It's almost impossible to imagine a world without Superman. This past April marked seventy-five years since the Man of Steel changed the American cultural landscape. Superman was the country's unique creation, and came to embody the best of a young nation, becoming her cultural ambassador during the dark times of the character's primitive years. These early Superman comics, with their energy and can-do spirit in the face of adversity, are among the most coveted and valuable vintage comics the market has to offer. Each displays the barrel-chested power, unwavering spirit, and guileless moral character of the first and still finest of superheroes.

Known as the Superman train cover (alongside it's counter-part Action 13), it features The Man Of Steel saving a little boy!
Superman #3 features one of the most famous images of Superman from his early days which shows the Man of Steel saving a little boy! The cover of this book does nothing to give away the fact it is nearly seventy-seven-years old, rarely do copies of this issue show up in such wonderful condition.

Joe Shuster cover/art; 2nd Luthor (Spring 1940)
As Holmes had Moriarty and Flash Gordon had Ming the Merciless, so did Superman have Lex Luthor, the tortured, evil genius hell bent on world domination and the subjugation of the Kryptonian hero. In only his second appearance, Luthor is established as a money-mad, power-crazed menace, using a convoluted scheme involving oil wells and real estate to conquer the business world and the American landscape, and capturing the attention of a certain reporter-cum-superhero in the process. Early Man of Steel tales were almost mundane in scale, with Supes taking on such depression-era scapegoats as robber barons, gangsters, greedy tycoons, and corrupt pols, making Luthor's operatic badness stand out from the pack. Though even in this instance, Siegel and Shuster still trafficked in the street-level nefariousness that came to define their early plotting. Also of note is the bald baddie on the cover. He can't possibly be Luthor, who still sports his original shock of red hair in the interior tale, but could this follicly challenged cover cameo have spurred Siegel's later alteration of the ginger-tressed villain within? Hmm &?

1st app. Perry White
Great Caesar's Ghost! The first appearance of the Chief, Perry White, makes this Super-issue a great key for hardcore Superfans, and a nice little piece of comics history. The striking Shuster cover also eerily predicts the character's full-force leap into the patriotic realm only a year later, as this pre-WWII cover shows the Man of Steel handily shrugging off fiery bullets from a wartime dogfighter.

Fred Ray cvr; Wayne Boring art; 1st bald Luthor
This marks the first appearance of Lex Luthor as he would come to be iconically known -- bald, ticked off, and out to get Big Blue. Luthor had been knocking about the Superman strip up to this point and making a general nuisance of himself, but the character really started to fall into place at around this time. Coupled with a typically dynamic, economically composed Fred Ray cover, this is a popular and important chapter of the Superman mythos.

classic Goebbels Nazi WWII cvr; scarce
Of all the DC stable, it was Superman who was most intertwined with the patriotic WWII-era propaganda that flooded newsstands after Pearl Harbor, as DC's top-drawer cover artists poured their hearts and souls into charismatic, barrel-chested imagery that fueled the war fires and shook dimes loose from comic readers across the country. While the flag covers are the best-known, savvy collectors know that covers such as this are scarcer and more desirable, stunning time portals back to an era when the whole world seemed on edge and characters like Superman were needed to prop up the morale of a deeply shaken nation. This cover is also notable for one of the few instances in which the nefarious Joseph Goebbels, Nazi propaganda maestro, was depicted in cover caricature, here finding himself helpless against the tireless power of liberty and the Allied Forces (with a little help from a certain Kryptonian, of course).
