ACTION COMICS (1938-2011) #1

DC
Grade:
CGC No Grade: 0.3
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.


Page 3 from Action Comics #1 contains a wealth of Superman history and heroism in just a few panels, from Clark Kent's workaday routine as a newspaper reporter, to Superman roughing up a wife-beating, knife-wielding maniac, and finally, to Kent's wooing of Lois Lane, this page, from the most valuable comic in the hobby, has plenty Superman lore to go around. This is a perfect opportunity to own a piece of comic book legend.

Overstreet Guide 2018 GD (2.0) value = $200,000.
