    Action Comics #4 (DC, 1938) CGC GD/VG 3.0 Off-white to white pages. The fourth appearance of Superman is one of Overstreet's top 100 Golden Age books. As such, it's a book that's difficult to pass up, no matter what the grade! Like #2-3 before it and #5-6 after it, this cover did not feature Superman or even mention him on the cover, it's before DC figured out that the Man of Tomorrow was the sales hit of this anthology series! Leo O'Mealia is the cover artist. Overstreet 2008 GD 2.0 value = $1,563; VG 4.0 value = $3,126. CGC census 12/08: 1 in 3.0, 6 higher.
