Superman #1 (DC, 1939) CGC GD/VG 3.0 Off-white pages. It's the nicest copy of the Golden Age blockbuster that we've offered in more than two years! There are just not that many copies available in nice grades. Soon after Superman's debut in Action Comics #1, it was apparent that one title for the Man of Tomorrow wasn't enough. So, barely a year later, DC gave him his own title. Today, the premiere issue is ranked fourth on Overstreet's Top 100 Golden Age Books list, and on pace to move into the third position within a few years. The creative team of writer Jerry Siegel and artist Joe Shuster built on their success with this new title, leaving no doubt about which superhero is the world's greatest, then and still. CGC notes, "Very minor amount of color touch on cover. Very minor amount of glue on cover. (Cover re-attached with 2 pieces of tape)." Overstreet 2009 GD 2.0 value = $25,000; VG 4.0 value = $50,000. CGC census 6/09: 3 in 3.0, 11 higher.
