2nd Superman cover! rare in any grade
Kentucky CollectionAlthough Superman proved to be a smash hit from day one, DC didn't have any Man of Steel covers lined up for the character until six months after his debut, relegating him to interiors while wrapping the issues in the illustrative, punchy, pulp-style covers that had graced both New Adventure and More Fun up to that point. Action #7 boasts the second-ever appearance of Superman on a comic book cover. Joe Shuster's perfectly understated style sets the mood for the character's early appearances, his bold strength, and boisterous energy perfectly match the simplified lines and stark, evocative landscape that works in perfect unity with Jerry Siegel's punchy dialogue and rapid-fire plotting, these elements all come together to give the series an unmatched kinetic energy. Any comic featuring the second-ever cover appearance of Superman is bound to be a highly desirable collectible, and this book has been a hot item at auction since ComicConnect has been in business. Regardless of any restoration work performed on this book, this comic is an extremely important milestone in the industry, and the memorable cover design is one of the truly iconic images of the Man of Steel from his earliest days. Joe Shuster’s cover illustration beams brightly, shimmering off of the clean, white background, with hot yellows and cool blues this book is in admirable condition, with sturdy construction that rounds out the overall appeal of this restored treasure.
