    Action Comics #2 (DC, 1938) CGC Apparent FN/VF 7.0 Slight/Moderate (A-2) Cream to off-white pages. Gerber lists this as a "7" ("scarce") in its Scarcity Index, which explains why we've offered roughly half the number of copies of #2 over the years as its big brother Action #1. In the past five years, we've offered just one other copy! Herein is the second appearance of Superman, which has the book currently tied for the #17 slot on Overstreet's Top 100 Golden Age Comics list. CGC notes, "Restoration includes: small amount of color touch on cover, pieces added to cover, tear seals to cover, cover cleaned, cover reinforced." Overstreet 2019 GD 2.0 value = $11,333; VG 4.0 value = $22,666; FN 6.0 value = $34,000.
