    Action Comics #17 (DC, 1939) CBCS FN+ 6.5 Cream to off-white pages. This was only the sixth Superman cover of the title, and it came from the talented hands of the Man of Steel's co-creator, Joe Shuster. The evil Ultra-Humanite makes an early appearance, and the Marco Polo features come to an end. Shuster, Fred Guardineer, Bernard Baily, and Bob Kane provided the interior art. This is the highest-graded of the nearly 20 copies we've seen over the past 14 years. This copy bears the CBCS "check mark" indicating exceptional quality for the grade. Overstreet 2016 FN 6.0 value = $4,665; VF 8.0 value = $11,663. CGC census 8/16: 3 in 6.5, 7 higher.
