As one of the top Golden Age keys, Superman #1 features an iconic Man of Steel cover image, plus a legendary origin that remains the definitive telling to most fans. (Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster's updated tale adds four pages deleted from Action Comics #1.) There's also added historical importance with the book offering the first back-cover pin-up in comics history, as well as stories showcasing three of the most important supporting characters in the Superman pantheon: Ma and Pa Kent (in their first appearance), along with Lois Lane.

Superman #1 also made comics history as the first true solo title for an American superhero. Unlike other books from the era, there were no back-up stories with other characters. This was a true testament to the Man of Steel's popularity, with Superman still a regular presence in Action Comics. (The publishers remained cautious enough to launch this solo Superman as a quarterly publication.)

As an investment, Superman #1 is only rivaled by Action #1 as a top collectible in any grade. The Man from Krypton has now spent decades being regularly featured in cartoons, serials, movies, television shows, and merchandising. Fans are anxiously awaiting the launching of the big-screen DC Extended Universe with 2025's Superman, to be followed by Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow in 2026. In fact, DC Studios' James Gunn announced his inspirations for the return of Superman by leading with Shuster's chain-shattering Superman #1 pin-up.

This rare book is an outstanding entry-level investment at CGC 2.0, with the cover's iconic imagery continuing to present strong colors for the grade. Copies of Superman #1 at similar grades have easily maintained a six-figure value in recent years.
