    Action Comics #6 (DC, 1938) CGC Apparent FN 6.0 Slight/Moderate (A-2) White pages. This very early Superman adventure (his sixth appearance) also features the debut of an unnamed "office boy," who according to Overstreet and DC's own Who's Who is none other than Jimmy Olsen! Also of note: This may be DC's first-ever gorilla cover -- a theme the publisher would return to over and over in later decades. Leo O'Mealia was the cover artist. Currently, it's tied for #43 on Overstreet's Top 100 Golden Age Comics list. CGC notes, "Restoration includes: small amount of color touch on cover, pieces added to cover, cover reinforced." Overstreet 2018 GD 2.0 value = $2,895; VG 4.0 value = $5,790; FN 6.0 value = $8,685.
