The first name in superheroes has always been Superman. "Look, up in the sky, it's a bird, it's a plane, it's...Superman!" Those words identified the character for decades and the big red "S" on his chest is one of the most-easily-recognized symbols in the world. Created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, Superman has enjoyed decades of popularity and has been featured in cartoons, serials, movies, television shows, and pretty much anything else you can put a price tag on. As one of the top Golden Age keys, this issue features Superman's origin story, a must-read for Man of Steel zealots. Often overlooked is the historical importance of this book, which showcases three of the most important supporting characters in the Superman pantheon: Ma and Pa Kent, as well as Lois Lane.

This copy of Superman #1 has obviously been enjoyed, loved, read, and possibly sat at a breakfast table, in the bottom of a book bag, or in a child's treehouse. The point is, this book has endured through the decades and has lived its life like a comic should, being treasured. On the lower side of the certification scale, the condition of this book gives more bidders a shot at owning a piece of history. Everything is here, the origin story, the five tales of superhero action, and the rich history of the comic book oeuvre. We are happy to offer this milestone to our bidders and watch them go nuts over it.
