Alex Ross painted Red Goblin cover; 2018; image size 12.25" x 18.5"
This piece, the Red Goblin's first cover appearance, shows the villain standing over a group of defeated Spider-Men (including Miles Morales, Silk, Agent Anti-Venom, and Clash) in this striking cover by modern master Alex Ross. This is the last cover before Marvel's historic Amazing Spider-Man #800 and Ross' art is worthy of the occasion. Ross is one of his generation's most highly regarded artists, changing the way Superhero comics are approached by both readers and creators with such classics as "Marvels" and "Kingdom Come." Gouache on board. Art is in excellent condition.

Second image is a sample image of printed cover, copy of the book not included with the artwork.

1st Superman by Siegel and Shuster
Highest Graded
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.

1st Superman by Siegel and Shuster
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.
Would you look at that, the famous panel on which the iconic cover illustration is based, showing Superman lifting a car into the air as if it were made of paper. With this simple image, the world would never be the same again, making this singular page a microcosm of the prized book it originates from. To own a piece of history, win this piece and fulfill the goal of all devoted comic collectors.

A single Action 1 page 5 (with brittle pages) sold for $16,000 in 2017. Just a year later, Action 1 page 1 (again brittle) set a world record price at $25,500. With off-white to white pages, this is a superior piece and it's arguable that page 5 with the cover swipe is more desirable than the page 1 with the brief origin.
Action 1 pages without Superman easily sell for over $2,000.
If you can't find a spare cover, this is a tremendous opportunity to own the page with the large panel cover swipe of Action Comics #1, the most important comic in the marketplace.

Overstreet Guide 2019 GD (2.0) value = $220,000.

4th Superman cvr, classic Joe Shuster train cvr; cf is ad for Superman #1
Highest Graded
Scarcely a year after his debut, the Man of Steel had become such an undeniable sensation that DC capitalized on his fame by giving him his own title, Superman. The publishers weren't pulling him from Action Comics, mind you -- in fact, they featured him on the cover with increasing frequency; no longer relying on repurposed pieces from their other anthology titles or tried-and-true pulp-style covers. Superman was clearly a keeper, it's obvious with this legendary Shuster cover, a fine example of the strong imagery that typified these early adventures of the insanely 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, the wheelchair-bound mad genius proves a cunning rival for our super-protagonist. A truly historic issue no matter which way you slice it and, as with so many of these early Action issues, extremely rare.
An essential Superman issue, this highest-graded copy is unrestored, boasting gorgeous inks, crisp edges, and clean pages that are downright bewildering. This iconic Golden Age treasure, in such pristine condition no less, is beyond scarce and will become a key piece in an investment collection.

Overstreet Guide 2019 NM- (9.2) value = $190,000.

Superman without S on chest cvr
The iconic image of Superman tearing a bank vault's door off was showcased here and later immortalized by Henry Cavill in the movie Man of Steel. It is not difficult to see why this issue has become one of the most sought after of the early Action Comics. The image of Superman performing a feat of otherworldly strength in front of a group of amazed bystanders is very reminiscent of the cover of Action Comics #1. Simon and Shuster's character touched something at the very core of Americans who were seeking a hero to help lift them out of the grim reality of the Great Depression. In what is a rarity for any Golden Age Superman cover, Big Blue's "S" symbol is not emblazoned upon his chest.
This book could be un-restored. Signed by Superman co-creator Jerry Siegel!

Joe Shuster cvr/art; 1st app. of Lex Luthor; 1st mention of Daily Planet
Just as Sherlock had Moriarty, so does Superman have his Alexei "Lex" Luthor, the template for all super-nemeses to follow, and arguably one of the best-known literary creations of the 20th Century in his own right. Initially, a standard evil-genius-with-a-death-ray stereotype developed by Siegel and Shuster for one of the anti-war potboilers for which the series was first known, Luthor quickly gained a style all his own, with a subsequent fan following, and flourished into one of the all-time great comic baddies. This comic is the first appearance of the character and is among the rarest of Golden Age keys.
The color quality of this 2.5-graded Action Comics #23 is as brilliant as it is stunning. The clarity of its tone and overall brightness set it apart from Golden Age books of a similar grade and give it splendid curb appeal and aesthetic value for such an accessible, well-loved piece.

Baily art; classic early German WWII cover (4/41)
The post-Pearl Harbor environment of wartime patriotism and bravado in the face of danger seems ever more stark when compared to the sharply bifurcated attitudes toward war and warriors in the late 1930s through early 1941. Where publishers and artists would churn out endless tales of Axis-punching derring-do once America's involvement in the all-encompassing conflict was assured, much of the storytelling leading up to the war was more ambivalent, or downright hostile to the powers that be. Unsurprising from a generation raised on the aftermath of the Great War and the crushing poverty of the Depression, it's still startling today. Even on cover imagery such as this, the mood is less one of jocular rabble rousing and more the melancholy, disgusted anger of scarred youth fighting the inevitable. Much of Siegel and Shuster's pre-WWII Superman material trods this fine line, and this arresting cover stands in mute contrast to the barrel-chested nature of Fred Ray's later iconic Super-imagery. Collectors treasure these early Superman covers, and with good reason, as the war effort would also later consume many of these popular comics in periodic paper drives, or care packages overseas to distraction-starved troops.

classic Fred Ray cover
Edgar Church / Mile High Copy
Highest Graded
The cover to Action Comics #52 breaks from the typical Golden Age conventions, as the Fred Ray illustration adorning the book showcases every hero that stars in the anthology. There's no question who the Big Kahuna is as the Man of Steel appears proudly in the center of the image, leading the patriotic charge, flanked by his supporting acts. The whole package is really quite impressive, at once subtly highlighting while simultaneously downplaying the wartime theme that dominated comics of the period. The Superman story within, "The Emperor of America," like many of Superman's social commentary tales, still resonates today as the plot concerns a mysterious man who hijacks the White House through the use of a special ray that causes the populace to become apathetic, allowing this crafty villain to take control of the country, but, as usual, Superman is there to save the day, disabling the indifference contraption and bringing the illegitimate emperor to justice.
As is de rigueur for any comic from the Edgar Church/Mile High pedigree, this copy of Action #52 is the highest graded on the census, perfectly preserved, with stunning bright colors, a solid and clean appearance, this is a comic book for the ages. Superman fans are sure to be chomping at the bit to compete for this brilliant Golden Age beauty.

Overstreet Guide 2019 NM- (9.2) value = $5,900.

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.
