CGC F/VF: 7.0
ow/white pgs; Court Case Copy
scarce! 1st Jimmy Olsen; gorilla cvr
The Jon Berk Collection
This issue features the very first appearance of Jimmy Olsen, although he is not named in the issue, Jimmy makes his debut as a lowly office clerk and not the photojournalist he is known as today. Readers first see him eavesdropping on Clark Kent in the middle of a conversation with someone claiming to be Superman's manager.
If you take a close look at this copy you will notice the of stamp on the cover, as well as the name "Court Copy" on the CGC label. These are very important markings, which loom large over the history of comic books. This copy was actually entered as physical evidence by National Periodicals (DC) in their historical court case against Fox Features Syndicate in their copyright infringement lawsuit surrounding Superman and Wonder Man. It was either by sheer luck or tremendous foresight that court copy issues still exist. True rarities from the very dawn of comic books, signaling the first legal challenge in the medium's history, DC has continually had to fight to preserve the rights to the Man of Steel, a struggle that goes on until today. Action Comics #6 copies are scarce in general, but the provenance behind this copy makes it's value nearly immeasurable to true comic book fanaddicts.

We seldom see a copy of Action Comics #6 this nice, and early Action Comics tend to be extremely scarce in high grade to begin with. Beautiful colors grace the cover's fantastic illustration by Leo E. O'Mealia depicting a menacing gorilla violently looming over a wayward jungle photographer.

Overstreet Guide 2017 F/VF (7.0) value = $18,601.

2nd app. of Batman; Kane, Shuster, Guardineer art
The Jon Berk Collection
This might be the most undervalued non-key in the Overstreet Guide. Perhaps the cover led collectors astray, not realizing its importance as the second-ever appearance of the Batman. Within, though, Kane and Finger were doggedly building the noirish mythology of their shadowy new hero, easily outshining the Slam Bradley and Fu Manchu features shoring up the rest of the book. By the time this issue roared off stands and into adolescent back pockets, DC was no longer uncertain about the potential of their new creation.


Overstreet Guide 2017 F/VF (7.0) value = $34,000.

1st app. of Sgt. Fury, Corporal "Dum Dum" Dugan, the Howlers and Captain "Happy Sam" Sawyer
The Jon Berk Collection
Colonel Nick Fury is best known as the tough, cigar-chomping leader of S.H.I.E.L.D. but he got his start way back in World War II as the Sergeant that led the elite special unit, the First Attack Squad, a.k.a. the Howling Commandos. The Commandos were racially and ethnically diverse which made the team a bit unique in the early civil rights era. Jack Kirby created the team and initially pitched the idea to John Severin as a syndicated newspaper strip in the late 1950s, but failed to get any traction with publishers. Espousing the same ideals of diversity that would later make the X-Men a global phenomenon, Kirby first brought his sense of justice to a more-relatable group of characters fighting for American values in the European theatre of WWII, and thus, begat the Howling Commandos.

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 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.
