ACTION COMICS (1938-2011) #1
CGC NM: 9.4
The most important comic book in history, Action #1 stands as the introduction of the archetype of all other heroes to come as Superman transcends comics and pop culture 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 brainchild 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 national spirit and spunk during the brutal days of WWII. Since then, he has endured 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.

This is the highest graded Action Comics #1 in existence and it looks absolutely superb. The near-mint appearance of this comic is truly astounding, from the clean and vibrant cover inks to the crystal-clear graphics. Having undergone moderate restoration, it's truly a gift to see the most iconic comic book ever published in the same shape as it was when first seen on newsstands over eighty years ago. This essential piece of history is the ultimate in comic book collecting.

Overstreet Guide 2019 NM- (9.2) value = $4,200,000.
