rare; 1st "The Phantom" in comic books
Highest Graded
What Superman is to America, the Phantom is to the rest of the world. Probably the first costumed superhero, predating the Man of Steel's debut by nearly two years, the Phantom was wildly popular throughout much of the 20th Century, especially in Europe and Australia, with a staggering daily readership of over a hundred million worldwide at his peak. Lee Falk's compelling and unforgettable creation was hugely influential on both hero strips and adventure comics, directly or indirectly inspiring everything from Batman and Zorro to Tin Tin and Indiana Jones, and has a massive cult following to this day. This historic first appearance of the Phantom in comic books is thus extremely historic, and marks possibly the first superhero appearance in a newsstand comic. Extremely scarce, existing in numbers so low they rival the scarcity of Marvel 1, Action 1, and Captain America 1, collectors never fail to leap at the painfully rare opportunity to buy this remarkable and important treasure.
This is the fourth copy we've offered in over a quarter-century! It is also the single highest-graded example of this incredible piece of comics history. We expect strong international interest in this important comic, and encourage aggressive bidding, as this book is highly unlikely to make it back to market again anytime in the near future.

The very first appearance of The Ghost Who Walks: The Phantom. He precedes Superman and Batman as he was created in 1936 by Lee Falk. He is so popular down under that he is practically the Superman of Australia. Extremely popular and possibly the coolest character to wear an all purple costume! This is the 2nd highest graded copy known to exist and only the 2nd time in thirty years we have ever seen one (the other being a 1.5 Fair/Good)! Extremely rare, incredibly important and again a very cool purple costume. Start bidding now!

1st Superman by Siegel and Shuster
Highest Graded
The most important comic book in history, this book stands as the introduction of the archetype for all other heroes to come as Superman transcends comics and pop culture as 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 brainchild of two struggling sci-fi fans from the Rust Belt, the Man of Steel became an instant icon to Depression-era readers and transformed into a symbol of American spirit and spunk during the brutal days of WWII. Since then, he has endured as both a beloved character and an embodiment of hope and vigor, making this first appearance not just a piece of comics' history, but American history as well.
