    Action Comics #21 (DC, 1940) CGC FN 6.0 Cream to off-white pages. As the conflict in Europe continued, war-themed covers of Action Comics, like this one (several months before America actually entered World War II) became the norm. This issue's cover has Superman hand-delivering a torpedo, and was drawn in a nicely textured style by Joe Shuster and Paul Cassidy. CGC notes that the Ultra-Humanite makes an appearance inside and there are two house ads in this issue for More Fun #52, which featured the classic Golden Age origin and first appearance of the Spectre. This unrestored copy remains quite fresh and attractive some 75 years later. Overstreet 2014 FN 6.0 value = $1,572. CGC census 5/15: 2 in 6.0, 11 higher.
