    Description

    Action Comics #1 (DC, 1938) CGC VG+ 4.5 Off-white to white pages. Featuring the introduction of Superman, this book single-handedly raised the comic industry from a second-rate medium of strip reprints to a legitimate business whose sales would eventually surpass even the best selling magazines. Action #1 is the holy grail of comic books, lusted after by virtually anyone who considers themselves a collector. This copy is a perfect VG+, simply because all of its major defects lie on the back cover. Exhibiting deep colors, clean paper and a tight spine, the book appears FN. Some light staining and a couple of small pieces out of the back cover lowers the grade, making this a wonderful chance to acquire a beautiful copy for a reasonable price. Once you own this book, you've reached the pinnacle of collecting. Overstreet 2002 GD 2.0 value = $38,000; FN 6.0 value = $105,000.
