    Description

    Action Comics #19 Billy Wright pedigree (DC, 1939) CGC VF- 7.5 Off-white to white pages. We've offered several copies of this early Superman cover issue over the past 10 years, but rarely nicer than FN 6.0 - until this beauty from the famed Billy Wright collection! Incredibly, although Superman made an auspicious cover debut in Action Comics #1, he hadn't appeared on consecutive covers. With this issue the Man of Steel took over the cover's starring role for good. The cover's by co-creator Joe Shuster, who also contributed interior art, as did fellow Golden Age pioneers Bob Kane and Fred Guardineer. Overstreet 2012 VF 8.0 value = $9,045. CGC census 11/12: 4 in 7.5, 2 higher.
