A 15% BUYER'S PREMIUM WILL BE ADDED TO THIS ITEM AT CONCLUSION OF THE AUCTION

Joe Shuster cvr/art; origin story, pin-up bc
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.
Over 80 years old, Superman #1 has been a landmark comic book for longer than most of us have been alive. This copy carries a 6.5 Restored Grade from CGC, with beautiful off-white to white pages. This book earned an Extensive (A-5) Restoration Grade, meaning that it was restored extensively, but with great attention to detail. The restoration includes color touch, pieces added, tear seals, cleaning, and reinforcing. This is an amazingly attractive comic, with such a clean classic Joe Shuster cover, advertising "the daring exploits of the one and only Superman." Although restoration may affect the overall value of a book, it cannot change the massive historical importance and cool factor of Superman #1.

Overstreet Guide 2021 FN+ (6.5) value = $617,000.
