1st Superman by Siegel and Shuster
Second City Collection
ACTION COMICS (1938-2011) #1
CGC VF+: 8.5
The most important comic book in the history of the industry, and the introduction of the archetype of all other heroes to come, Superman transcends the comic medium, and pop culture in general, as 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 transformed into a symbol of American spirit and spunk during the brutal days of WWII. Since then, he has lasted as both a beloved character and an embodiment of hope and vigor, making this first appearance not just a piece of comics' history, but of American history as well.

With so very few opportunities to own a copy of Action Comics #1, no chance at the Mount Everest of comics should be taken lightly. The moderate restoration, with cleaning and reinforcing included, has potentially added generations of ownership to this outstanding investment collectible.

From the estate of a private collector.
