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.

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.

Superman covers begin; 1st published ad app. of Flash & Hawkman (12/39)
December 1939. Cover and art by Joe Shuster. Still in his infancy, Superman shows us his strength by ripping the turret off an enemy tank on this Joe Shuster cover. With this issue, the regular Superman covers in the series begin, and this comic also debuted the 1st published advertising appearance of some of the most important superheroes to follow: Flash and Hawkman.

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.

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.

one of the most iconic covers of the Golden Age! 1st app. Joker; 1st app. Catwoman (Spring 1940)
Bob Kane and Batman co-creator Bill Finger wiped the grime off Gotham and added a bright, youthful cohort to the Batman mythos. One of the most famous comics of the Golden Age, featuring one of the most iconic covers, Batman #1 is the perfect cornerstone for any new GA collector; an accessible comic that only increases in value and popularity year after year. Featuring not only the first appearance of the infamous and remarkably influential Catwoman but also of the immortal Joker, Batman #1 is consistently among the top-ten-most-desirable comics in the world, always demanding impressive prices and always a super-hot item in our auctions. As knowledgeable collectors are aware, top-tier keys are becoming more and more difficult to find on the market, as owners know well enough to hold on to these trophies and lock them away for years or sometimes generations.

Batman's extensive and popular media universe keeps him at the forefront of the modern discourse of superheroes. Early Batman issues are increasingly rare in all grades but this 2.0 copy has a surprising amount of aesthetic appeal. The colors are robust as the Dynamic Duo avoids the majority of the erosion on this cover and swings into the hearts of fans worldwide.

Overstreet Guide 2018 GD (2.0) value = $50,000

2nd app. Joker, 2nd app. Catwoman; classic Joker splash page
By the second issue of Batman the transformation of the character and franchise from dark, brooding, mystery of the night to cheerful (if bizarre) puncher of bad persons was complete. Even the backgrounds of these covers mark a decisive change from the pre-Robin era: from dense, detailed settings full of menace to bright, eye-catching color washes meant to pry coins from the pockets of precocious boys. Despite the flattening of the character's idiosyncrasies, there was also no denying the inventiveness and joy of these classic-era tales, with Kane's ghost artists -fine craftsmen all- filling pages and pages with deliriously imaginative locales, perfectly craggy thug faces, and no end of action and mayhem.

This VG copy of Batman #2 has a bright red background, which highlights the juvenile prank taking place in the center of the cover, as luck would have it, Batman, Robin, and their victim have avoided any of the nicks and dings on this iconic cover. The Dynamic Duo's colors are well-defined, as is the detailed pattern on the gangster's suit, a nifty copy of a hard-to-find GA classic.

Bob Kane/Jerry Robinson cvr/art; 3rd app of Catwoman (1st in costume)
Early Batman comics are notoriously difficult to procure and issue #3 has one of the best covers of the first ten issues of the run. This one looks like it may have been the basis for the animated intro of the iconic Adam West TV series. You can almost hear the theme song as you look at it! It just so happens to contain the first appearance of Catwoman in full costume and the first appearance of the Puppet Master as well.

Comic covers don't come much more iconic than this one, Batman's grey and blue color scheme is deep and clean, and the bright hues of Boy Wonder's outfit stand out in perfect balance to his partner's darker design. Imperfections are located at the edges or corners of the cover leaving the Caped Crusaders mostly unaffected by the passage of time.

classic Fred Ray Joker cover; Penguin app.
Joker covers always bring a premium at auction and this cover is a perfect example why. With Batman as the King, Robin as the Jack, and the Joker as, who else, the Joker, Fred Ray's fabulous design was an instant classic. As was the style of the day, someone usually got punched in the jaw and nothing's better than Joker getting a good socking from Batman! The Penguin makes a fowl appearance as well. Art by creator Bob Kane and Jerry Robinson.

While this cover does have shadowing around the top and right side, the central image has been left relatively free of wear, Batman, Robin, and the Joker are all clean and clear, with pigments that have remained loud and proud. The purples of the Joker's vestments are palpable, while the Dynamic Duo is brought to the fore by their respective red and blue backgrounds. A handsome and solid VG+ copy of a beloved Batman issue.

Joker app.; WWII paratrooper cover; Jerry Siegel & Joe DiMaggio cameos
This book's cover illustration, by co-creator Bob Kane, bears a classic WWII image of the Dynamic Duo parachuting into action, no doubt to do their patriotic duty for the boys overseas. The interior of the book contains three thrilling tales: "The Batman Plays a Lone Hand", in which Batman, surprisingly, fires Robin in order to go solo; "Comedy of Tears", a Joker story which includes "real world" cameos by Joe DiMaggio and Superman creator Jerry Seigel; and "The Story of the Seventeen Stones", which pits the Bat against Rocky Grimes, who does indeed employ seventeen forms of stone in the executions of his crimes.

classic Batman origin issue; Catwoman app.
Just as Superman's origin was gussied up for the new, post-WWII era of heroic action, so too did DC add drama and color to the Batman's already iconic origin tale. Previously, all that was known of the Caped Crusader's beginnings came from the crude but affecting one-page debut tale in seen in Batman #1, leaving the door wide open for Batman co-creator Bill Finger to expand upon the hero's dark origins and spin a new tale of revenge. Re-encountering Joe Chill, the boxer-faced thug who murdered his parents, the Dark Knight reveals his secret Bruce Wayne identity to the aging gunman in a startling and still-effective scene that is rightly legendary, and proves that maligned Bat-Daddy Bob Kane could still turn out surprisingly solid work given the right impetus. An instant classic, capped with a cover as revered as any from the first year of Bat-appearances in Detective, this is a major, badly underappreciated key, made even more collectible due to the lower print runs of post-WWII comics and the surprisingly low number of surviving copies in acceptable condition. One of the most important comics published in the late Golden Age, and one of the top five Bat-keys of all time.

classic Joker cvr; 1st app. Mad Hatter, Vicki Vale
Bearing one of the more exotic of the early Batman covers, issue #49 offers a great deal of action and, most notably, the first appearance of Jervis Tech aka The Mad Hatter in "The Scoop of the Century," which also prominently features the debut of Bruce Wayne's love interest Vicki Vale. Also included are "The Prison Doctor," and "Batman's Arabian Nights" which involves the Joker and a fantastic trip to Baghdad, Iraq. The cover illustration is quite surreal and atypical compared to others from the period, portraying the Joker as a genie in a lamp, looming menacingly above the Caped Crusaders as they cower in fear.

Athough there is some slight chipping along the right side of this cover, this book reamins is in admirable condition with vibrant hues and solid binding. A popular issue from the early run of Batman, the striking image of the Joker is one of the most memorable of the time period. The three legendary characters are completely intact and as bright as the day they were printed.
