Baily art; 1st app. and death of Zolar!
The rumor about DC making a Zolar movie is unfounded at this time. The rumor that I am currently dating Kim Kardashian, however, is 100% accurate.

Baily art; classic early German WWII cover (4/41)
The post-Pearl Harbor environment of wartime patriotism and bravado in the face of danger seems ever more stark when compared to the sharply bifurcated attitudes toward war and warriors in the late 1930s through early 1941. Where publishers and artists would churn out endless tales of Axis-punching derring-do once America's involvement in the all-encompassing conflict was assured, much of the storytelling leading up to the war was more ambivalent, or downright hostile to the powers that be. Unsurprising from a generation raised on the aftermath of the Great War and the crushing poverty of the Depression, it's still startling today. Even on cover imagery such as this, the mood is less one of jocular rabble rousing and more the melancholy, disgusted anger of scarred youth fighting the inevitable. Much of Siegel and Shuster's pre-WWII Superman material trods this fine line, and this arresting cover stands in mute contrast to the barrel-chested nature of Fred Ray's later iconic Super-imagery. Collectors treasure these early Superman covers, and with good reason, as the war effort would also later consume many of these popular comics in periodic paper drives, or care packages overseas to distraction-starved troops.

classic Fred Ray cover
Edgar Church / Mile High Copy
Highest Graded
The cover to Action Comics #52 breaks from the typical Golden Age conventions, as the Fred Ray illustration adorning the book showcases every hero that stars in the anthology. There's no question who the Big Kahuna is as the Man of Steel appears proudly in the center of the image, leading the patriotic charge, flanked by his supporting acts. The whole package is really quite impressive, at once subtly highlighting while simultaneously downplaying the wartime theme that dominated comics of the period. The Superman story within, "The Emperor of America," like many of Superman's social commentary tales, still resonates today as the plot concerns a mysterious man who hijacks the White House through the use of a special ray that causes the populace to become apathetic, allowing this crafty villain to take control of the country, but, as usual, Superman is there to save the day, disabling the indifference contraption and bringing the illegitimate emperor to justice.
As is de rigueur for any comic from the Edgar Church/Mile High pedigree, this copy of Action #52 is the highest graded on the census, perfectly preserved, with stunning bright colors, a solid and clean appearance, this is a comic book for the ages. Superman fans are sure to be chomping at the bit to compete for this brilliant Golden Age beauty.

Swan cvr; origin & 1st app. Supergirl; 1st app. Metallo
The notion of a female answer to Superman had been tried out a few times before this debut appearance, with various one-offs and stunts or imaginary stories allowing DC's staff writers try out new angles on the strip, which was seemingly running out of steam and ideas. The Superman TV series was still running, however, and merchandising for the character was as much a cash cow as ever, so the exhausted creative staff were willing to try anything to keep the flagship DC title chugging along. As Superman had never really had a sidekick like Batman's Robin or Captain America's Bucky, it was decided to try adding a little female flavor to the mix, and, based on the strong reader response to a recent Super-Girl one-off tryout, veteran scribe Otto Binder teamed with regular Superman artist Al Plastino to solidify the Man of Steel's family tree with a teenaged girl from Krypton. The results were an immediate smash, with overwhelmingly positive reader response, a massive increase in sales, and a whole new set of themes and stories for the creative staff to work with thanks to the perky, smiling blonde new arrival. Young girls especially were delighted to finally have a super-powered counterpart to Kal-El, and the character of Kara implanted herself so completely into the Superman mythos that it's amazing to think she wasn't introduced until twenty years into the character's series. The rabid response to this issue led to copies being passed along, borrowed, and read heavily, resulting in a startlingly low number of surviving copies, even by the scarcity standards of tough-to-find 1950s DCs. Coupled with the heavy demand for this historic key and the still-feverish fan base for the Girl of Steel, this is among the top-three toughest DC Silver Age keys to track down. With a television series accelerating its exposure, copies are snapped up almost the minute they hit the market, making this a no-brainer investment key, and a must-have for serious DC collectors.

2nd Sandman cover by Flessel (09/39)
Edgar Church / Mile High Copy
Highest Graded
This issue features the second cover appearance of Wesley Dodds, the Golden Age Sandman, just the first of many characters throughout comics history to use that moniker. Created by Gardner Fox and artist Bert Christman, who was sadly shot down in the Pacific in 1942, Dodds graces this Creig Flessel cover adorned in his trademark gas mask and fedora, using his sleeping gas gun on unsuspecting criminals. The story within features Dodds reuniting with some old Navy pilot buddies to solve a mystery concerning the mysterious deaths of several of their shipmates. In addition to the Sandman story, this issue also features work by Jerry Siegel, Wayne Boring, Sheldon Moldoff, Bill Finger, and Bob Kane.
An extraordinary example of a pre-1940 superhero title featuring a character that still has a following and a role in current DC continuity. This is a gorgeous, Church/Mile High copy and naturally the highest ever certified by CGC.

Overstreet Guide 2019 NM- (9.2) value = $16,400.

Joe Shuster cvr/art; Aquaman, Green Arrow, Johnny Quick, & Superboy begin (move from More Fun)
When DC decided to turn More Fun Comics into a children's title at issue #108, they transferred all of the book's superheroes over to Adventure Comics, Green Arrow, Aquaman, and Johnny Quick all made the move along with the newly introduced Superboy, a half-pint version of the Man of Steel, who appealed to younger readers and helped expand sales for the publisher. The playful cover design announced the retooling of Adventure Comics into the home for the youthful Kryptonian.
