A 15% BUYER'S PREMIUM WILL BE ADDED TO THIS ITEM AT CONCLUSION OF THE AUCTION ow pgs; Biljo White copy; original front cover pieces married to color copy cvr; (C) leaf casting int; cf is color copy (does not affect Superman Story) origin & 1st app. of Superman by Siegel and ShusterThe most important comic book in history, Action #1 stands as the introduction of the archetype of all other heroes to come as Superman transcends comics and pop culture as an icon of truth, justice, and the American way!
Created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, Superman is quite possibly the most recognizable fictional character in the world. The brainchild of two struggling sci-fi fans from the Rust Belt, the Man of Steel became an instant icon to Depression-era readers and transformed into a symbol of national spirit and spunk during the brutal days of WWII. Since then, he has endured as both a beloved character and an embodiment of hope and vigor, making this first appearance not just a piece of comics' history, but of American history as well.
The cut-out of Superman and the car, the wheel, the man on his knees, as well as several other pieces are all original from an Action #1, affixed to a cover reproduction. On the interior, no art is missing (except cf) and there is only reinforcement of the spine and edges. The leaf casting does not affect the art.
Biljo White was one of the key figures in early comics fandom, who among other things published the fanzine Batmania and contributed to the early issues of Alter Ego.
