    Description

    Action Comics #23 (DC, 1940) CGC FN/VF 7.0 Off-white to white pages. Uncommonly high-grade copy of the issue that featured the first appearance of super-villain Lex Luthor and the first mention of The Daily Planet. Those factoids have made this issue the #43 book on Overstreet's list of Top 100 Golden Age Comics, tied with Action Comics #6, and ranking ahead of several other lower-numbered issues of the storied title. Joe Shuster provided the Superman cover and interior art. Sheldon Moldoff, Bernard Baily, and Fred Guardineer added interior art. CGC notes, "Very small amount of dried glue on spine of cover." Overstreet 2020 FN 6.0 value = $14,100; VF 8.0 value = $33,400. CGC census 9/20: 4 in 7.0, 6 higher.
