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.

Leo O'Mealia cvr/art; 2nd app. of Superman
The Jon Berk Collection
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.

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.

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.

classic Shuster Superman tank cover (10/39)
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/circus lion battle cover; 1st Lois Lane cover (uncredited)
Paul Cassidy started working on Action Comics as a "ghost" artist, helping out an overburdened Joe Shuster who, in addition to drawing Action Comics and Superman also had to grind out Superman daily strips due to the character's incredible popularity. Cassidy eventually emerged from the shadows to illustrate Superman stories and covers, like this stunning circus design, showing the Man of Steel taking on the King of the Jungle. Ads for Batman #1, All-Star #1 interior front cover.
