1st Superman by Siegel and Shuster
Highest Graded
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.

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.

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.

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, he quickly gained a popularity and style all his own, and flourished into one of the all-time great comic baddies. The first appearance of the character is among the rarest of Golden Age keys.
