SUPERMAN (1939-86; 2006-11) #1
CGC FN: 6.0
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 identified the character for decades and the big red "S" is one of the most-easily-recognized symbols in the world. Created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, Superman has enjoyed decades of popularity and has been featured in cartoons, serials, movies, television shows, and much, much more. As one of the top Golden Age keys, this issue features the origin of DC's most well known and best-loved hero! 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, as well as Lois Lane.

Following the justifiable media frenzy of our record-breaking sales and Action Comics #1 acquisitions, collectors and investors have flocked to Golden Age keys, and this book is a perfect investment for anyone looking to enter the exploding market as well as everyday collectors looking for more bang for their buck. This restored copy pays off with its stunning visual appeal. Although Superman doesn't need another movie or TV show to make his comics worth more, we bet that will happen in any case.

Overstreet Guide 2018 FN (6.0) value = $344,000.
