1st Superman by Siegel and Shuster; possibly the most famous and most important comic ever published!
CGC VG/F: 5.0
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.

The Superman comic that will save a family's home from foreclosure has already eclipsed pre-auction estimates and is going strong.

This comic was found in the basement of a home on the verge of foreclosure and was "a very happy accident," says's Stephen Fishler, CEO.

The newly discovered comic is the legendary comic book that introduced Superman to the world. In this case, Superman really did save the day.

"We are on pins and needles checking at least twice a day to see what our book is up to," said the consignor, who wishes to remain anonymous. "This is beyond our wildest dreams!"
