SUPERMAN (1939-86; 2006-11) #1
Publisher:
DC
Grade:
CGC FA: 1.0
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" on his chest 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 pretty much anything else you can put a price tag on. 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.

This unrestored copy was well-loved by previous owners as its grade belies the eye appeal of this tome. There are luckily few blemishes to the central image on the cover, with a patina of age telling the story of this book and the hands it has passed through. Superman strikes his triumphant pose for the reader in all his glory, establishing himself as a household name for decades to come, as he remains atop the pyramid of superherodom even today.

Overstreet Guide 2019 GD (2.0) value = $100,000.
