DESCRIPTION
A 15% BUYER'S PREMIUM WILL BE ADDED TO THIS ITEM AT CONCLUSION OF THE AUCTION
crm/ow pgs Label # 0004524001
origin & 1st app. of Superman by Siegel and Shuster
The most important comic book in history, Action #1 stands as the introduction of the archetype of all other heroes to come as Superman transcends comics and pop culture as an icon of truth, justice, and the American way!

Created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, Superman is quite possibly the most recognizable fictional character in the world. The brainchild of two struggling sci-fi fans from the Rust Belt, the Man of Steel became an instant icon to Depression-era readers and transformed into a symbol of national spirit and spunk during the brutal days of WWII. Since then, he has endured as both a beloved character and an embodiment of hope and vigor, making this first appearance not just a piece of comics' history, but of American history as well.

What sales pitch can make this comic more desirable? There is no more important, valuable, and sought-after book than the first appearance of Superman. Collectors dream of hitting the lottery so they can own their very own copy of this iconic publication that transcends comics to become one of the most treasured items on the planet. If you have the means to compete for this grail issue, you must throw your hat into the ring. This 3.0 copy shows some telltale signs of its vintage, but the patina accrued over the years only lends character to this amazing icon of American pop culture. Any Action #1 would immediately assume the role of centerpiece in even the greatest collection, with only a handful of surviving copies around, and prices ever on the rise, take a chance on winning your very own piece of history!

Overstreet Guide 2021 GD/VG (3.0) value = $394,500
