origin of Superman; 1st four Action stories retold; one of the most famous first issues of the Golden Age!
The first name in superheroes has always been Superman. "Look, up in the sky, it's a bird, it's a plane, it's...Superman!" Those words identified the character for decades and the big red "S" on his chest is one of the most-easily-recognized symbols in the world. Created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, Superman has enjoyed decades of popularity and has been featured in cartoons, serials, movies, television shows, and pretty much anything else you can put a price tag on. As one of the top Golden Age keys, this issue features Superman's origin story, a must-read for Man of Steel zealots. Often overlooked is the historical importance of this book, which showcases three of the most important supporting characters in the Superman pantheon: Ma and Pa Kent, as well as Lois Lane.


This highest-graded example of the third-most valuable and historically-relevant comic book ever published, looks every bit as good as ones that appeared on newsstands back in the summer of 1939. This tastefully, attractively-restored copy boasts bright yellows and startling reds, with the iconic cover image virtually popping off of the page. There is no way to overstate the rarity of viewing Golden Age comics in this kind of condition. This book would be the centerpiece of any collection and bidding is expected to reflect just how in demand Superman still is after all these years.

This restored 5.0 copy of Superman #1 showcases a distinctive cover and graphic style unlike most comics of its time which makes sense as Superman stands so uniquely apart from other heroes. The cover retains its captivating yellow sheen, encasing Superman in golden hues like the living god he was born to embody.

Overstreet Guide 2019 VG/F (5.0) value = $300,000.

Joe Shuster cvr/art; 1st Luthor (Spring 1940); This book appeared on newsstands BEFORE Action 23
As Holmes had Moriarty and Flash Gordon had Ming the Merciless, so did Superman have Lex Luthor, the tortured, evil genius hell bent on world domination and the subjugation of the Kryptonian hero. In only his second appearance, Luthor is established as a money-mad, power-crazed menace, using a convoluted scheme involving oil wells and real estate to conquer the business world and the American landscape, and capturing the attention of a certain reporter-cum-superhero in the process. Early Man of Steel tales were almost mundane in scale, with Supes taking on such depression-era scapegoats as robber barons, gangsters, greedy tycoons, and corrupt pols, making Luthor's operatic badness stand out from the pack. Though even in this instance, Siegel and Shuster still trafficked in the street-level nefariousness that came to define their early plotting. Also of note is the bald baddie on the cover. He can't possibly be Luthor, who still sports his original shock of red hair in the interior tale, but could this follicly challenged cover cameo have spurred Siegel's later alteration of the ginger-tressed villain within? Hmm &?

Fred Ray WWII Nazi cvr; real 1st app. of Jimmy Olsen; Lex Luthor app. (11-12/41)
No, Action Comics #6 does not feature the first appearance of Jimmy Olsen as that is just an anonymous cameo. It is, in fact, Superman #13 that bears this honorable distinction. Originally created for the Superman radio show in 1941, Jimmy Olsen would go on to earn his own title in time and become a fixture in the Superman mythos. The Man of Steel takes on the Axis on this cover, placing this book in the beloved pantheon of WWII Superman issues. The double whammy makes this issue very appealing to Super-collectors and war-time comic buffs alike.
