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.

This example of the third-most valuable and historically-relevant comic book ever published, looks every bit as good as ones that appeared on newsstands back in the summer of 1939. This tastefully, attractively-restored copy boasts bright yellows and startling reds, with the iconic cover image virtually popping off of the page. There is no way to overstate the rarity of viewing Golden Age comics in this kind of condition. This book would be the centerpiece of any collection and bidding is expected to reflect just how in demand Superman still is after all these years.
