    Action Comics #8 (DC, 1939) CGC GD 2.0 Cream to off-white pages. Superman's first use of super-hearing occurred in this issue, which boasts a cover by Fred Guardineer and art by Guardineer, Joe Shuster, and Bernard Baily. A difficult issue to find in any grade, this is only the fourth complete, unrestored copy that we've encountered to date -- and one of the nicer ones, too! CGC notes, "Cover detached." Our catalog description mentioned a cracked CGC case, which has now been replaced by CGC. Overstreet 2013 GD 2.0 value = $1,829. CGC census 5/14: 1 in 2.0, 6 higher.
