    Description

    Action Comics #29 Billy Wright pedigree (DC, 1940) CGC NM 9.4 Off-white to white pages. This is the highest-graded copy by a wide margin (the runner-up being 8.0). It's wonderful to see a high-grade copy of this early Lois Lane cover appearance -- Lois's very first according to Overstreet (if you tend to give issues #23, 24, or 27 the nod, you're in luck, as those issues are offered in this same auction). What's clear-cut is that the copy shown here is the best one ever offered for public sale. Superman cover by Wayne Boring. Overstreet 2011 NM- 9.2 value = $7,000. CGC census 2/12: 1 in 9.4, none higher.
