4th Superman; classic O'Mealia cover (9/38)
In a way, it's a good thing that DC cautiously kept the Man of Steel off these early Action covers, as it allowed great illustrators like Leo O'Mealia one last hurrah, a chance to show off the chops that kept DC's pre-Kryptonian comics flying off of shelves. Firmly a part of the tradition of American illustration traceable through the pulp cover craze back to the early days of yellow journalism and penny dreadful covers, this stunning cover image stands in stark contrast to the bright, yet crude imagery quickly overtaking the newsstands. Dramatic, finely detailed, and richly observed, this evocative imagery was soon to be wiped off the stands by the caped copycats soon to follow in the wake of Superman's shocking and unprecedented success. This early appearance of the Man of Steel is insanely rare, and appearances of this scarce issue tend to send collectors into a bidding frenzy.

Fred Ray cvr/art; 1st Luthor cvr
Yep, that's him getting hurled through a brick wall by the Man of Steel. After countless instances of getting thwarted by Supes and pounded into jelly, pity was shown to the bald baddie as he was given his first cover appearance in this issue. Of course, he was only shown from the back. Typical. Fred Ray's signature economy and heft make this a cover to treasure.

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.

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 (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.
