Pg 9 Chapter 2; Nick Cardy pencils, inks and signed; 14.5 x 19.25"
1st Mera app.
Feast your eyes on a watery magic carpet ride. This splash page from the incendiary talents of Nick Cardy is a preview of things to come as two advertising pages prior, our heroes were left trapped in the clutches of the powerful Leron, the nefarious usurper to the throne of queen Mera. This cliffhanger intro assured readers in 1963 that the foes from Dimension Aqua would not get the best of our titular character who would soon find a way to rescue Mera, in her comic book debut, from her would be saboteurs.

Nick Cardy penned and inked this entire issue. His never-ending talents dazzled readers with new and ingenious ways for these super-abled opponents to manipulate the oceans in epic battles. Consider each watery ripple drawn and expertly present. Attention to details such as these allows the audience to be transported to a porthole view of all the action.

Pg. 2; Dick Dillin pencils, Sid Greene inks; image size 10" x 15"
There's eye candy galore, every square inch of the page is filled with little details, this Dick Dillon and Sid Greene collaboration kickstarts the story "Return of the Seven Year Dead Man," the tale of a gangster with amnesia who suddenly regains his memory after reading his own death announcement in a newspaper. He recalls a pact with his former partners in crime and decides to return to Ivy City to attend his own funeral, surprising his old pals.

Which brings us to this full-page splash that comes to us, not from page one, but from page two, and it's a genuine cornucopia of action. The reader is brought in mid-skirmish as the Atom biffs, bangs, and pows a bank robber for a loop with a tiny, but atom-packed right cross. In addition, we see a side panel of a reformed gangster, preparing his money as a handsome endowment to Ivy University. Interiors like this one we proudly bring to auction set the audience up for page turning thrills. How do all these characters intersect? Read on, read on.

Pg. 19; Don Heck pencils, Dick Ayers inks; image size 13.5" x 20"
Battling the Mole Man was a rite of passage for the heroes of Marvel's Silver Age and this time it's the Avengers' turn to fight the foe from down below. A particular panel of note on this page gives us a silhouette of the bite-size hero, Ant-Man, inside the mechanics of Mole Man's evil machine. Fans of Paul Rudd's silver screen performances note the method is exactly how the mini-Avenger foiled both the Falcon and Iron Man. Recently, original art collectors got hip to the creative duo of Don Heck and Dick Ayers, as auction prices for their work have risen steadily. With values for Kirby art in the reaches of the beyond for some collectors, Heck and Ayers do a damn fine job of it for the price.

From the story, The Coming of...the Swordsman
Hydra's Displacer Ray snatches a seemingly innocuous document from Captain America, relaying nothing more than Cap's interest in working with Sgt. Fury. While of no value to the disgruntled Hydra henchman, below, a passerby will find this discarded memo and attempt to sell the tidbit of information to the Swordsman, who has placed a handsome bounty on anything leading to the capture of one of the Avengers. This attractively illustrated page hails from a classic story that features the first appearance of the Swordsman. Each panel blends into the next creating a seamless flow to the scene. It takes great skill to illustrate a scenario with more imagery than words, Heck and Ayers masterfully accomplish this with great aplomb.

2nd page only, ow/white pg; bullet ricochets off of Superman for the first time "horseplay"
1st Superman by Siegel and Shuster
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 that 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. Needless to say, but 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.

rare!! Superman by Siegel and Shuster
In "The Big Scoop" Lois Lane plays a nasty prank on the hapless Clark Kent causing him to miss the last train to the scene of a dam collapse, which he easily attends anyway, because he's Superman after all. Upon his arrival he holds the dam together long enough to save many lives, but Lois ends up getting swept away in a raging flood, a scenario which was referenced to great effect in 1978's Superman, starring Christopher Reeve and Margot Kidder. This book presents the fifth appearance of Superman ever, as well as the first kiss between the Man of Steel and Lois Lane. Add that to the scarcity of this comic, in any condition, and a perfect storm of value and desirability is baked in.

scarce! 1st Jimmy Olsen; gorilla cvr
The colorful, detailed cover, rendered with great skill by Golden Age pioneer Leo O'Mealia, is atypical of most comics from the era, which were generally crude and amateurish, making this book one of the most sought-after from the dawn of comics. Even better, this issue features the very first appearance of Jimmy Olsen, although not named in the issue, Jimmy makes his debut in the Superman feature as a lowly office clerk and not the photojournalist he is known as today.

2nd Superman cover! rare in any grade
Although Superman proved to be a smash hit from day one, DC didn't have any Man of Steel covers lined up for the character until six months after his debut, relegating him to interiors while wrapping the issues in the illustrative, punchy, pulp-style covers that had graced both New Adventure and More Fun up to that point. Action #7 boasts the second-ever appearance of Superman on a comic book cover. Joe Shuster's perfectly understated style sets the mood for the character's early appearances, his bold strength, and boisterous energy perfectly match the simplified lines and stark, evocative landscape that works in perfect unity with Jerry Siegel's punchy dialogue and rapid-fire plotting, these elements all come together to give the series an unmatched kinetic energy.
This copy looks truly impressive. Though detached, the cover still remains in quality condition with even, vibrant colors and only slight wear to the edges. No visual aspect of this animated cover is lost due to its age yet its patina denotes a well-read and well-loved comic book. By his second cover, Superman had already gained so much popularity it's a wonder it took them so long, nevertheless it remains a key piece of Superman's history that would make an attractive addendum to any collection.

Overstreet Guide 2018 G+ (2.5) value = $50,000.

Superman's 1st use of Super-Hearing... What?
By the mid-60s, it seemed like Superman had super-everything: Super-Vision, Super-Breath, Super-Fast-Typing, Super-Disguise-Power, you name it. Purists would balk that this was the result of overeager editors and writers trying to soup up the character for the Atomic age, but you can kinda blame Siegel and Shuster directly for this, since here's an appearance from the first year of Super-exploits, in which the Man From Krypton uses his, er, well, Super-Hearing. For something. Or some such. Okay, it's silly to think about now, but in those heady, pulp-friendly days deep in the depression and with a new war looming, readers were ready and willing to suspend disbelief as long as the stories were fun, well-crafted, and larger than life, and this early appearance is crackling with virbancy and style. This extremeley rare issue is capped off with a classic Guardineer cover in the classic pre-hero tradition.

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.

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.
Shimmering reds and yellows highlight this stunning, classic cover, which remains in remarkable condition almost eighty years after it was printed. Although this copy is missing its staples, it presents at higher than its designated grade, and you simply can't go wrong with the iconic Joe Shuster cover illustration, its more powerful than a locomotive!

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.

classic Shuster Superman tank cover
Action Comics #17 predates America's entry into WWII by over a year, but while the war raged on overseas, the US comic industry could not stay silent about the conflict. This cover shows Superman battling a nondescript enemy, using his super-strength to stop a tank dead in its tracks, and shrugging off a machine gun attack at the same time. These early Action issues certainly let readers know where Siegel and Shuster stood regarding the atrocities going on in Europe and Asia, and their iconic Kyrptonian hero would soon start turning his powers on the very real threats of the Axis powers.

Fred Guardineer cvr/art, Bob Kane art; origin & 1st app. of Three Aces (11/39)
Superman's powers eventually grew, by the Silver Age, to include super-breath, super-hearing, probably even super-toenail clipping. It's amusing, then, to see how late into his Golden Age run came his first use of X-Ray vision, in this issue, which is capped off by a typically stunning Guardineer dogfight cover. The last non-Superman cover in the series, note that DC was already anxious about losing the attention of new readers attracted by Superman, slapping an iconic Super-image on the upper corner of the logo, as if to say, "No, really, he's in here!" The Superman mythos was slowly but surely building, issue by issue, and this important entry helped create that enduring legend.
