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 DC's. 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 brand new 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.

Creig Flessel cvr, Bob Kane art; 1st Sandman (07/39)
While 1939's New York World's Fair comic is Sandman's actual first appearance, many consider Adventure Comics 40 to be the issue that breathed life into the character, as it contained the first story conceived for the suit, gas mask, cape, and fedora wearing hero. Gardner Fox and Bert Christman are generally credited with creating the character under the pseudonym "Larry Dean", along with illustrator Creig Flessel. They spawned a crime fighter that held strong ties to the dark, moody pulp magazines that acted as the precursor of, and inspiration to, the nascent comic book industry.

The eerie image of Sandman on the cover falls directly in line with the hard-nosed, no nonsense style DC employed in the golden era. Shown firing his gas gun, Sandman strikes a harrowing chord of fear that would soon step aside for a less-frightening incarnation of Dodd's alter ego.
Graced with a faint patina of age, this copy of Adventure Comics #40 is evocative of the time in which it was published. Bright enough to attract the viewer yet just faded enough to be recognizably Golden Age, this book presents a tight frame with clean edges despite minor wear at the top. A central piece of comic book history, Adventure Comics #40 is a rock-solid investment as well as a highly coveted collector's item.

The white marks at the top left edge of the front cover are part of the printing of the cover.

Overstreet Guide 2017 FN+ (6.5) value = $28,750.

Curt Swan cvr; 1st app. of the Legion of Super-Heroes
Intended to be a one-off story featuring Superboy, the Legion of Super-Heroes has gone on to become the focus of countless stories since its introduction. Adventure Comics 247 tells the story of a group of three time-traveling teenagers from the 30th century who are looking to recruit Superboy into their outfit. Cosmic Boy, Lightning Boy (later referred to as Lightning Lad), and Saturn Girl, sit with stern faces, claiming Clark Kent is "too ordinary" to join their cause. The title story and accompanying statements by Cosmic Boy were just enough to entice young readers into finding out why Superboy was deemed so pedestrian. The curious plot-line in this issue would prove to become a benchmark for DC storytelling. The Legion returned several issues later for an encore and were adored by fans, subsequently, they appeared in issues of Action and Adventure Comics over the next few years. The continued success of the Legion proved that this story was not a throw-away Silver Age ploy, the group had staying power throughout the years, and most recently secured a reboot in the post-Infinite Crisis storyline in 2007.
