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 have been used to identify the character for decades and the big red "S" 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, and television shows. As one of the top Golden Age keys, this issue features the origin of DC's most well-known and best-loved hero! 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.


Overstreet Guide 2018 GD (2.0) value = $86,000

full pg ad for 1939 NY World's Fair Comics; rare!!
It's almost impossible to imagine a world without Superman. This past April marked seventy-five years since the Man of Steel changed the American cultural landscape. Superman was the country's unique creation, and came to embody the best of a young nation, becoming her cultural ambassador during the dark times of the character's primitive years. These early Superman comics, with their energy and can-do spirit in the face of adversity, are among the most coveted and valuable vintage comics the market has to offer. Each displays the barrel-chested power, unwavering spirit, and guileless moral character of the first and still finest of superheroes.

Known as the Superman train cover (alongside it's counter-part Action #13), it features The Man Of Steel saving a little boy!

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 &?

4th Luthor app.; full page ad for Batman #1 and All Star #1 (Summer 1940)
What's striking about early Superman appearances is how cleanly and unabashedly it presents the adolescent male fantasy image, the barrel-chested, incorruptible big brother figure soaring across skies and smacking around baddies with aplomb and stern precision. All of the iconic images of the period feature our hero effortlessly domineering all the mysterious elements of grownup life, from banks to trains to warplanes, you name it. This issue features a typically manly image and an early Luthor appearance within. It is unsurprising that this simple, effective imagery continues to bewitch collectors to this day, and has hardly aged a bit.

Fred Ray cvr; Wayne Boring art; 1st bald Luthor
This marks the first appearance of Lex Luthor as he would come to be iconically known -- bald, ticked off, and out to get Big Blue. Luthor had been knocking about the Superman strip up to this point and making a general nuisance of himself, but the character really started to fall into place at around this time. Coupled with a typically dynamic, economically composed Fred Ray cover, this is a popular and important chapter of the Superman mythos.

classic Fred Ray Hitler/Tojo WWII cover; 1st Fortress of Solitude, scarce
From the vantage point of the modern day, it's hard to understand just how seismic WWII was, and how brutal, primal, and honest the response was in American popular culture. From the perspective of our politically correct era, WWII covers can seem crude and frightening, but for a populace already shaken by a decade of poverty then challenged by the eruption of yet another multi-national conflict, covers like this hit the spot and helped boost national morale. There's no arguing that Superman was among the most recognizable of wartime icons, and the character's series of patriotic war-era covers, mostly drafted by the dependable, criminally underrated Fred Ray, became synonymous with the era's pop culture. This is among the scarcest of those treasures, and one of the most direct, in which two of the architects of the Axis attack, the nefarious Hitler and the despised Tojo, are easily subdued by the mighty Man of Steel, an image that surely raised the spirits of GIs and their loved ones back home. WWII Superman covers are like a collectible unto themselves, making these nearly bullet-proof investments.
