It's almost impossible to imagine a world without Superman. This past April marked eighty-one 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.

As is the case with Action Comics #2, the second issue of Superman's solo series is actually a tougher book to find than the debut. Many collectors of early Supes recount horror stories of trawling desperately through online resources, show stock, and dealer tables, trying to find this elusive entry with its clean, minimalist cover. Search no more! Not only a fine example, but this copy is also the highest graded in existence; a truly amazing specimen, with fiery reds and bright, cheerful yellows. The sense of discovery and wonder is keenly captured here, thrusting the viewer back to the glory days of the American hero comics' craze. There is no way to overstate the rarity of finding Golden Age comics in this kind of condition, and anyone looking to build a world-class collection of GA issues cannot afford to miss the opportunity to own one of the finest examples of this important title.
