2nd Superman cover! rare in any grade
Although 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.
Action Comics #7 is an excruciatingly rare book, with just over 50 copies recorded on the census, so collectors can’t be choosy about grade or restoration if they want to add this prize to their portfolio. The second-ever appearance of the Man of Steel on a comic cover is an important key for any Superman collector worth their salt. The restoration work done on this book has given it new life, the colors are punchy, with a very clean presentation, strong borders, and a fresh eye appeal. This comic is so rare in any condition that any copies offered at auction go for staggering amounts, this Event Auction provides a wonderful opportunity for a determined bidder to land this copy, for a price break of an original condition example, we fully expect there to be heated competition over this book come auction time.
