It's almost impossible to imagine a world without Superman. This past April marked eighty-three years since the Man of Steel changed the American cultural landscape. Superman is one of the country's many unique creations and came to embody the best of a young nation, becoming a cultural ambassador during the dark times of the character's formative years. Early Superman comics, with their energy and can-do spirit, are among the most coveted and valuable vintage comics the market has to offer. Each displays the barrel-chested power and guileless moral character of the first and still finest of superheroes.


This is the 2nd highest graded copy in the CGC census. The screaming bright, canary yellow and deep, fire engine red colors on the cover of this copy are eye-popping. It is a really pretty book. Whether you are building a high grade Superman run or just want an early issue in high grade as an example in your collection, this copy is a must have. Many long-time collectors and investors often look to under-priced 2nd issues in series to tuck away for a number of years in hope for value appreciation. This is just one of those comics.
