Action Comics #1
Jerry Siegel, Joe Shuster
June 1938

What can you say about this book?! It is the Holy Grail of all super-hero comic books! This copy (which looks to be in "Good" at best) runs about $38,000 today! A "Near Mint" copy (if one even exists) would set you back well
over $400,000.00!!!
This is the first appearance of Superman and represents the very first super-hero comic story! In 1939 comics mainly appeared in newspapers and you can see this influence in this story (no splash page and no page numbers - but every panel is numbered)!
Enjoy this landmark story! If you're a Superman fan, you're about to see a very different character than the one you're used to!!
