Fred Ray WWII Nazi cvr; real 1st app. of Jimmy Olsen; Lex Luthor app. (11-12/41)No, Action Comics #6 does not feature the first appearance of Jimmy Olsen as that is just an anonymous cameo. It is, in fact, Superman #13 that bears this honorable distinction. Originally created for the Superman radio show in 1941, Jimmy Olsen would go on to earn his own title in time and become a fixture in the Superman mythos. The Man of Steel takes on the Axis on this cover, placing this book in the beloved pantheon of WWII Superman issues. The double whammy makes this issue very appealing to Super-collectors and war-time comic buffs alike.The blinding bright yellow wash that makes up the background of this cover is shockingly well-preserved, as are all of the hues on this classic Golden Age beauty. Check out those pastel blues and hot reds! The Fred Ray illustration pops with vigorous elan as this rousing GA treasure is sure to be a hotly contested item when the hammer drops.
