origin of Superman; 1st four Action stories retold; one of the most famous first issues of the Golden Age!
The first name in superheroes has always been Superman. "Look, up in the sky, it's a bird, it's a plane, it's...Superman!" Those words identified the character for decades and the big red "S" on his chest is one of the most-easily-recognized symbols in the world. Created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, Superman has enjoyed decades of popularity and has been featured in cartoons, serials, movies, television shows, and pretty much anything else you can put a price tag on. As one of the top Golden Age keys, this issue features Superman's origin story, a must-read for Man of Steel zealots. Often overlooked is the historical importance of this book, which showcases three of the most important supporting characters in the Superman pantheon: Ma and Pa Kent, as well as Lois Lane.
Somewhere in its treasured eighty-year existence, this particular copy tragically became permanently separated from its cover. While the fate of that piece of superhero history might never be known, the good news is that missing cover makes this book available for purchase to more collectors for much less than the astronomical amounts a complete book demands. Everything important is still here, the origin story, the five tales of superhero action, and the rich history of the comic book oeuvre. One simply cannot go wrong by owning any copy of this milestone, and we are happy to offer this copy of this top-five comic to our bidders. This is a unique chance to own one of the biggest key issues for a song. This could also become a special DIY project for a for someone looking to marry it with a cover, as the interiors are complete and in good condition.
