1st Superman by Siegel and Shuster
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.

This apparent 6.5 copy of Action Comics #1 is a breathtaking beauty to behold. Just a lovely book all around. Every auction of this milestone comic commands staggering hammer prices but this copy, in particular, has all the trappings of a showstopper. The crystal clear appearance of the iconic cover makes an already rare find even rarer and will most assuredly attract bidders and watchers from around the globe.

Overstreet Guide 2018 FN+ (6.5) value = $875,000.

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.

Leo O'Mealia cvr/art; 2nd app. of Superman
Superman wasn't a sure thing. So uncertain were DC Comics (then National Periodicals) that the second issue in the Action series, prepared before the initial issue hit the stands, didn't even feature the Man of Steel on its cover. As a result, Action #2 is arguably even scarcer than the first, the number of copies on the CGC census are less than half that of the mighty Action #1. This comic, which was once considered a throwaway, worth only pocket change of the era, and intended to pass time for only a moment, has been preserved through the passage of many decades.

This book presents a stunning color palette that belies its VG- grade, soft pink and green tones create a moody background that places the damsel in distress' red dress at the center of the viewer's attention. Leo O'Mealia's airborne action illustration is just the sort of pulpy fare that drew new readers into the burgeoning comic book phenomenon that was sweeping the nation.

Overstreet Guide 2018 VG- (3.5) value = $18,900.

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 first wrap from Action Comics #10 is an important artifact for fans of the Man of Steel, as the half-splash atop the first page contains an image that would be repurposed as the cover image for Superman #1. Not only can fans obtain a small but valuable piece of an early Action, but they will also own an original printing of an illustration that is instantly recognizable to any comic book fan who knows their history. All this for a fraction of the price for a complete Action Comics #10.

Overstreet Guide 2018 GD (2.0) value = $23,600.

Guardineer cvr/art (4/39)
It was no accident that Siegel and Shuster gave their hero an alter ego of an earnest reporter. In the cynical, depression-battered days of the late 1930s, it was assumed that anyone running a big business or holding a position of authority was somehow running a racket, and the only ones who could expose their chicanery were the hard-bitten newsmen who turned the morning edition into a megaphone for the forgotten man. Thus, early Supes tales such as these pit our intrepid Kryptonian not against mad scientists or alien menaces, but against the money men, corporate fatcats, and corrupt politicians that dead-broke comics readers assumed were responsible for everything that had gone rotten in America. This issue features one of the last non-Superman covers, another gorgeous pulp-derived beauty from the great Fred Guardineer.

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.

Interior bc full page ad for 1939 New York World's Fair Comics
This book is in commendable condition even though there is some foxing over the logo. The underwater cover almost makes you feel the pressure of the deep bearing down on you as you watch Superman lift the submarine off of the seabed. The colors on this book recreate the experience of being submerged while you oversee the action, a true classic of the Golden Age.

While DC knew that Superman was a headliner, lead times didn't allow for the hero to become the regular cover feature on the anthology title until more than a year into the run. This is one of the last pulp-style covers to grace the series before the Man of Steel claimed top billing for the duration of the series, and the legendary Fred Guardineer ends his run in style with a classic image that hearkens back to the very finest of pre-superhero illustrative imagery. Note that this issue contains a full page ad for the upcoming World's Fair 1939 comic, which served to introduce Superman to the few remaining readers not yet aware of the instant pop culture sensation.

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.

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.

Superman firing squad bondage cover
December 1940. Superman leaps to the rescue and stays the trigger-fingers of a military firing squad on this brilliantly crafted cover by Fred Ray.

Those goons knew they were going to be in trouble when the Last Son of Krypton leapt in there to interrupt their firing squad. The Joe Shuster illustration on this cover boasts bright colors that still retain their glow, the binding is firm, and the book is in admirable condition despite some light shadowing, the thrilling central image is as clean and clear as the day it was printed. You can almost feel the wind rushing at you as the Man of Steel lands. Readers can experience the same sense of relief as the condemned man Superman is protecting as he absorbs the bullets intended for the helpless victim on this classic cover.

When DC decided to turn More Fun Comics into a children's title at issue #108, they transferred all of the book's superheroes over to Adventure Comics, Green Arrow, Aquaman, and Johnny Quick all made the move along with the newly introduced Superboy, a half-pint version of the Man of Steel, who appealed to younger readers and helped expand sales for the publisher. The playful cover design announced the retooling of Adventure Comics into the home for the youthful Kryptonian.

This 9.2 copy is in great condition, the saturated blue background tones are clean and smooth, and the tomfoolery with the car in the foreground brings to mind a toned-down version of Action Comics #1, complete with stunned onlooker.

rare in any grade; Shuster art
The misty, night-shrouded streets barely contain the gloss of the rain-slicked pavement. The soft hiss of car tires conjoin with the faint, sharp sounds of a struggle in the dark alleys of the city. These are the moods and milieu of the early run of Detective Comics, the darkest and certainly most atmospheric of all Golden Age DC titles and one which excited readers even before the appearance of a certain Dark Knight. The first several years of this compelling comic, starring Bob Kane and Bill Finger's immortal creation, are among the most revered and collectible of all Golden Age comics. The finely-wrought covers by pulp maestros Craig Flessel and Fred Guardineer, along with the dynamic interior art by Joe Shuster and a host of others, mixed well with the riveting stories by dependable yarn-spinners Jerry Siegel and Gardner Fox, to make this title ground zero for the emerging comic medium.

1st app Batman by Bob Kane; one of the top three most important comics ever published!
After DC Comics' huge success with Superman, editors were looking for another superhero to cash in on, and young creators Bob Kane and Bill Finger came up with The Batman. The team was inspired by Douglas Fairbanks' portrayal of Zorro, Lee Falk's comic strip The Phantom, Leonardo DaVinci's ornithopter (glider) blueprints which had large bat-like wings, the classic mystery film The Bat Whispers, and the mystery novel The Circular Staircase. As a result, in May of 1939, DC hit pay-dirt again with one of the most memorable and iconic fictional characters in history, Batman! Witnessing the murder of his parents as a child leads millionaire Bruce Wayne to train himself to physical and intellectual perfection and don a bat-themed costume in order to fight crime. Detective Comics #27 is one of the most desirable and valuable comic books to own, an important part of American pop culture history.

One of the two monoliths of comic book collecting, Detective Comics #27 still draws attention even when it's only the first page of the historic issue.

1st app Batman by Bob Kane; one of the top three most important comics ever published!
After DC Comics' huge success with Superman, editors were looking for another superhero to cash in on, and young creators Bob Kane and Bill Finger came up with The Batman. The team was inspired by Douglas Fairbanks' portrayal of Zorro, Lee Falk's comic strip The Phantom, Leonardo DaVinci's ornithopter (glider) blueprints which had large bat-like wings, the classic mystery film The Bat Whispers, and the mystery novel The Circular Staircase. As a result, in May of 1939, DC hit pay-dirt again with one of the most memorable and iconic fictional characters in history, Batman! Witnessing the murder of his parents as a child leads millionaire Bruce Wayne to train himself to physical and intellectual perfection and don a bat-themed costume in order to fight crime. Detective Comics #27 is one of the most desirable and valuable comic books to own, an important part of American pop culture history.
