    Description

    Action Comics #9 Billy Wright pedigree (DC, 1939) CGC VG/FN 5.0 Off-white to white pages. This issue is so tough that the copy offered here is one of just two graded above VG- 3.5! Just to illustrate the strong demand for this issue: Heritage sold the only higher-graded copy (7.0) in 2008, when it fetched $19,120 or quadruple the Guide value at the time!
    This was just the second cover ever to mention Superman's name (#7 being the first, even #1 did not have his name)! That shows that by this time, eight months after #1, DC had an early inkling that Superman was the character who was selling this anthology series. The cover illustration is by Fred Guardineer. Overstreet 2011 VG 4.0 value = $2,588; FN 6.0 value = $3,882. CGC census 2/12: 1 in 5.0, 1 higher.
