DESCRIPTION
crm/ow pgs (please read bidding requirements in listing description)
origin & 1st app. of Superman by Siegel and Shuster


Every passing year confirms Action Comics #1 as the most important event in the history of comics publishing. This is the book that introduced a fantastic new kind of hero, as created by teen visionaries Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster. The inspiring Man of Steel became an instant icon to Depression-era readers before transforming into a symbol of national pride during the brutal days of WWII.

Since then, the Man of Steel has spent decades as one of the world’s most recognizable fictional characters — transcending comics and pop culture as the face of truth, justice, and the American way. It's also clear that Superman’s first appearance will continue to be cherished by future generations. The making of DC Studios’ upcoming big-screen Superman has already become one of this year’s biggest showbiz stories.

ComicConnect is proud to have been part of Action #1's rise as the world's most collectible comic. We’ve been setting new sales records for Superman’s debut since launching the company, including the book's first $1,000,000 sale back in 2010. Earlier this year, Action #1 made headlines again with a $6 million sale for a CGC-graded 8.5 copy. That adds up to decades of passionate collectors investing wisely while also preserving a true cultural artifact.

The whitest cream/ow pages we have ever seen. Will undoubtedly make its way back to CGC for a pg upgrade.

The winning bidder will be offered 6 month terms at 0% interest.
