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.
The power of Superman's centered form on this cover calls to mind the magnitude of his character. He stands alone, not quite man in a man's world, poised to protect the weak from evil, looking down from his windswept vantage. This threadbare-yet-scrappy 1.0 copy still retains all the appeal of Superman's classic pose and serves as a more economical option for investors on a budget. This book has become the new Action #1 for collectors as prices for Superman's first appearance have grown beyond the means of many.
Overstreet Guide 2018 GD (2.0) value = $86,000
