    Action Comics #8 (DC, 1939) CGC GD 2.0 Cream to off-white pages. You may not realize how very tough this issue is! CGC has certified a mere seven total copies (only issue #9 has fewer). Other than the one in the bound volume elsewhere in this catalog, this is the first copy Heritage has ever offered! With a "top of Guide" value of $18,000, it barely missed Overstreet's Top 100 Golden Age books list, and we expect it to sell for more than the Guide price in any case. Fred Guardineer's cover is a non-Superman affair, but of course the Man of Tomorrow had only been on two covers to that point: #1 and #7. CGC notes, "Cover detached." Overstreet 2009 GD 2.0 value = $1,059. CGC census 4/10: 1 in 2.0, 3 higher.

    View the certification for CGC Certification ID 983033001 and purchase grader's notes if available.
