1st Superman by Siegel and Shuster
The most important comic book in the history of comic books. This is the introduction of the archetype of all other heroes to come. Superman transcends comic books and pop culture. He is 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 easily transformed into an icon of American spirit and spunk during the brutal days of WWII. Since then, he has lasted as both a beloved character and a symbol of modern hope and vigor, making this first appearance not just a piece of comics' history, but of American history as well.

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 cover to 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.

Fred Guardineer cvr/art, Bernard Baily, Joe Shuster, Bob Kane art
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.

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 type, 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.

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.

Hibbard showcases a team roster which includes the Atom, Sandman, Spectre, Flash, Hawkman, Dr. Fate, Green Lantern, and Hour Man.

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.
