    Description

    Action Comics #9 (DC, 1939) CGC GD+ 2.5 Brittle pages. This was just the second cover ever to mention Superman's name (with #7 being the first)! 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. Cover by Fred Guardineer. Art by Guardineer, Joe Shuster, and Bernard Baily. CGC notes, "Moderate amount of tape on cover interior." Of the handful of copies that we've seen over the years, this is only the third unrestored CGC-graded copy. Overstreet 2013 GD 2.0 value = $1,829. CGC census 5/14: 2 in 2.5, 7 higher.
