Curt Swan cover; origin & 1st app. of BizarroCreated by the team of Otto Binder and George Papp, the hapless Bizarro made his first appearance in this very issue, being bought to life by a malfunctioning duplicating ray fired at Superboy, Bizarro was born, with all the powers of the Kryptonian, but not much of his brains. The character would strike a chord with DC Superfans and go on to become a regular nemesis, and occasional companion, to the Man of Steel. Silver Age DC keys are difficult to come by, especially in higher grades, and this book is no exception, a serious must have comic for anyone with a soft spot for the amusing antics of the beloved backwards Bizarro.
This copy boasts a lovely purple wash across the background that really enhances the action up front. The bright colors, sharp corners, and tight spine combine to make this a real find, one of only two 9.0 copies on the census, with only one book graded higher. Odds are that Bizarro will show up in the DCEU before long, so it would be a good idea to invest in this book today.
