    Action Comics #5 Billy Wright pedigree (DC, 1938) CGC VG+ 4.5 Off-white to white pages. One of Overstreet's Top 50 Golden Age books, this is tougher to find than Action #1! Superman didn't make the cover of his fifth appearance. While this book is fairly low-grade owing to spine and back-cover issues, the front cover presents very well, and as the census info below indicates, there are not many better ones known to the hobby. Leo O'Mealia is the cover artist. Overstreet 2011 VG 4.0 value = $4,000. CGC census 2/12: 3 in 4.5, 7 higher.
