Superman wasn't a sure thing. So uncertain were DC Comics (then National Periodicals) that the second issue in the Action series, prepared before the initial issue hit the stands, didn't even feature the Man of Steel on its cover. As a result, Action #2 is arguably even scarcer than the first, the number of copies on the CGC census are less than half that of the mighty Action #1. This comic, which was once considered a throwaway, worth only pocket change of the era, and intended to pass time for only a moment, has been preserved through the passage of many decades.

This book presents a stunning color palette that belies its VG- grade, soft pink and green tones create a moody background that places the damsel in distress' red dress at the center of the viewer's attention. Leo O'Mealia's airborne action illustration is just the sort of pulpy fare that drew new readers into the burgeoning comic book phenomenon that was sweeping the nation.

Overstreet Guide 2018 VG- (3.5) value = $18,900.
