A 15% BUYER'S PREMIUM WILL BE ADDED TO THIS ITEM AT CONCLUSION OF THE AUCTION
crm/ow pages; Mod(A-3) ct, pcs added, tr seals, cleaned, reinforced; edges trimmed
origin & 1st app. of Superman by Siegel and Shuster


Every passing year confirms Action Comics #1 as the most important event in the history of comics publishing. This is the book that introduced a fantastic new kind of hero, as created by teen visionaries Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster. The inspiring Man of Steel became an instant icon to Depression-era readers before transforming into a symbol of national pride during the brutal days of WWII.

Since then, the Man of Steel has spent decades as one of the world’s most recognizable fictional characters — transcending comics and pop culture as the face of truth, justice, and the American way. It's also clear that Superman’s first appearance will continue to be cherished by future generations. The making of DC Studios’ upcoming big-screen Superman has already become one of this year’s biggest showbiz stories.

ComicConnect is proud to have been part of Action #1's rise as the world's most collectible comic. We’ve been setting new sales records for Superman’s debut since launching the company, including the book's first $1,000,000 sale back in 2010. Earlier this year, Action #1 made headlines again with a $6 million sale for a CGC-graded 8.5 copy. That adds up to decades of passionate collectors investing wisely while also preserving a true cultural artifact.



What sales pitch can make this comic more desirable? There is no more important, valuable, and sought-after book than the first appearance of Superman. Collectors dream of hitting the lottery so they can snap up their very own copy of this iconic publication that transcends comics to become one of the most treasured items in history. If you have the means to compete for this ground-zero grail, you must throw your hat into the ring. This CGC 8.5 restored copy has undergone a bang-up professional refurbishment, and looks pretty darn spiffy, with a presentation that has a natural and warm eye appeal that some restored comics lack. Any Action #1 would immediately assume the role of the centerpiece in even the greatest comic book collection, with only a handful of surviving copies around, in original or restored condition, and prices ever on the rise, take a chance on reeling in your very own piece of planetary history!

Overstreet Guide 2022 VF+ (8.5) value = $3,150,000
