1st Superman by Siegel and Shuster
The most important comic book in history, this book stands as the introduction of the archetype for 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 American 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 American history as well.
Action #1 is one of the rarest keys but in high grades is even more elusive and VF+ copies are nearly unheard of. This stellar example of an already astronomically valuable comic has undergone some restoration and everything about the book looks phenomenal. From the popping colors to the clean edges and light pages that highlight the legendary interior art. Once this sells it will likely disappear into an investment collection for a long time so you do not want to miss your chance!

Overstreet Guide 2019 VF+ (8.5) value = $2,205,000.

Coverless: 0.1
6 loose pgs; 1st pg mssg, xerox of first pg included
4th Superman; classic O'Mealia cover (9/38)
In a way, it's a good thing that DC cautiously kept the Man of Steel off these early Action covers, as it allowed great illustrators like Leo O'Mealia one last hurrah, a chance to show off the chops that kept DC's pre-Kryptonian comics flying off of shelves. Firmly a part of the tradition of American illustration traceable through the pulp cover craze back to the early days of yellow journalism and penny dreadful covers, this stunning cover image stands in stark contrast to the bright, yet crude imagery quickly overtaking the newsstands. Dramatic, finely detailed, and richly observed, this evocative imagery was soon to be wiped off the stands by the caped copycats soon to follow in the wake of Superman's shocking and unprecedented success. This early appearance of the Man of Steel is insanely rare, and appearances of this scarce issue tend to send collectors into a bidding frenzy.

Joe Shuster cvr/art; 3rd Superman cvr
The First World War was seared into the world's mass consciousness in the early twentieth century. Millions were traumatized by the unprecedented horrors and loss of life the war delivered in such a short time. This trauma explains the introversion the American public experienced concerning involvement in the new conflict brewing across Europe in the late 1930s. Comic covers such as this, in which Superman seems to be battling against war as a concept than against a defined enemy, were common in the pre-Pearl Harbor days. This Superman image is a far cry from the beefy, smiling patriot soon to grace WW II DC covers, and still startles with its raw emotion and power. This is yet another extremely rare early Action comic that commands top dollar on the Golden Age market.
The cover on this unrestored Golden Age masterpiece is so very appealing, with bright colors and clean edges, despite some spine wear. These well-traveled pages contain classic tales of the Man of Steel's early adventures. This book is a precious rarity, sure to fetch an impressive price at auction.

Overstreet Guide 2019 GD (2.0) value = $26,000.

classic Joe Shuster train cvr; cf is ad for Superman #1
Note the centerfold ad: barely a year after his debut, the Man of Steel had become such an undeniable sensation that National has decided to capitalize on his fame by giving him his own solo title. Not that they're pulling him from Action Comics, mind you -- in fact, they're putting him on the cover of the comic with increasing frequency, no longer relying on repurposed covers from their other anthology titles and tried-and-true pulp-style covers. Superman is clearly here to stay, and it is announced with this legendary Shuster cover, a fine example of the strong, solidly built imagery that typified these early, more muscular adventures of the incredibly popular hero. Not only notable for the announcement of the character's upcoming solo series, this issue also boasts the debut of Superman's first real arch-nemesis, the Ultra-Humanite. Clearly inspired by villains from Saturday serials and Republic B-thrillers, this wheelchair-bound mad genius proves a cunning rival for our super-protagonist, in a debut appearance so thickly plotted and full of constant cliffhangers it practically bursts at the seams (and may have been a repurposed set of daily strips, as with the first few Action Superman appearances). A truly historic issue no matter which way you slice it, and, as with so many of these early Action issues, extremely rare.
The cover of Action Comics #13 is a true classic, showing Superman stopping a train with his bare hands. Such a scarce book is a worthy investment in any condition and the story within remains complete for future generations to appreciate.

Fred Guardineer submarine battle cvr; Shuster, Kane, Baily art
Early Superman Action covers are scarce -- very scarce. They're also very popular with Golden Age collectors, which means the copies that do make it to market are snapped up almost instantly. This dynamic cover is a great example as to why Superman was so big then, and why GA Supes are so popular now, as the Man of Steel performs the impossible in a realistic-yet-fantastic setting, and brings truth and justice to the downtrodden in his own inimitable fashion. The fifth-ever Superman cover, and a beaut.

Fred Ray cvr/art; 1st Luthor cvr
Yep, that's him getting hurled through a brick wall by the Man of Steel. After countless instances of getting thwarted by Supes and pounded into jelly, pity was shown to the bald baddie as he was given his first cover appearance in this issue. Of course, he was only shown from the back. Typical. Fred Ray's signature economy and heft make this a cover to treasure.

In his first appearance he captures Metropolis, but Superman escapes his imprisonment only to find that the villain has also stored his Kryptonian home city of Kandor in his menagerie in this important issue that looms large in Superman lore. Brainiac would go onto become a major player in DC's stable for years to come.

off white pgs; from the collection of Kevin Michael McFadden
Swan cvr; origin & 1st app. Supergirl; 1st app. Metallo
The notion of a female answer to Superman had been tried out a few times before this debut appearance, with various one-offs and stunts or imaginary stories allowing DC's staff writers try out new angles on the strip, which was seemingly running out of steam and ideas. The Superman TV series was still running, however, and merchandising for the character was as much a cash cow as ever, so the exhausted creative staff were willing to try anything to keep the flagship DC title chugging along. As Superman had never really had a sidekick like Batman's Robin or Captain America's Bucky, it was decided to try adding a little female flavor to the mix, and, based on the strong reader response to a recent Super-Girl one-off tryout, veteran scribe Otto Binder teamed with regular Superman artist Al Plastino to solidify the Man of Steel's family tree with a teenaged girl from Krypton. The results were an immediate smash, with overwhelmingly positive reader response, a massive increase in sales, and a whole new set of themes and stories for the creative staff to work with thanks to the perky, smiling blonde new arrival. Young girls especially were delighted to finally have a super-powered counterpart to Kal-El, and the character of Kara implanted herself so completely into the Superman mythos that it's amazing to think she wasn't introduced until twenty years into the character's series. The rabid response to this issue led to copies being passed along, borrowed, and read heavily, resulting in a startlingly low number of surviving copies, even by the scarcity standards of tough-to-find 1950s DCs. Coupled with the heavy demand for this historic key and the still-feverish fan base for the Girl of Steel, this is among the top-three toughest DC Silver Age keys to track down. With a television series accelerating its exposure, copies are snapped up almost the minute they hit the market, making this a no-brainer investment key, and a must-have for serious DC collectors.
