ACTION COMICS (1938-2011) #1
Publisher:
DC
Grade:
CGC No Grade: 0.3
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.


Nice show of powers ripping a steel door off the hinges saving an innocent woman from electrocution. With this 2nd page of Action Comics #1, you can own a piece of history either as a standalone relic or a quest for completion.

Page 1 sold for $25.5K in our Augsut 2018 Event Auction.

It's worth noting that all previous Superman Action 1 pages have been brittle, while the page offered in this listing has a near perfect preservation of off-white to white page quality. Needless to say, a complete copy of this book is out of reach for most collectors these days, and a complete coverless copy would easily sell for over six-figures as well, so this is a great opportunity for someone to get a superb Superman page of the Holy Grail of Comics.
