    Action Comics #11 (DC, 1939) CGC FN/VF 7.0 Cream to off-white pages. It's been five long years since we last saw an unrestored copy of this early issue, and this is also easily the best we've ever offered. Hard to believe though it may be, Superman was not the cover feature here, and in fact this is just the fourth cover in the series to mention the hero's name (after #7, 9, and 10). In fairness: costumed mystery men weren't yet a full-fledged craze by this early date (April 1939), in fact Detective #27 hadn't even hit the stands yet. The folks at National did give this one a rollicking naval cover by Fred Guardineer. As noted above, this is a very difficult book to come by in this grade. Overstreet 2007 FN 6.0 value = $1,446; VF 8.0 value = $3,374. CGC census 1/08: 1 in 7.0, none higher.
