    Description

    Superman #1 (DC, 1939). This Golden-Age key was the first time any comic book was devoted to a single character, a radical idea in 1939. This landmark first issue features, "The Complete Story of the Daring Exploits of the One and Only Superman." It includes the stories from Action Comics #1-4 by co-creators Jerry Siegel (writer) and Joe Shuster (art) with two new pages added to the origin plus four new pages that were omitted from the Action story. This copy has good colors with extensive amateur restoration including a large piece replaced at the top left corner of the front cover. In addition, the centerfold and back cover have been replaced with color photocopies and the spine has been reinforced. This is a great low-grade copy for the Superman collector on a budget! Condition: PR. Overstreet 2001 GD 2.0 value = $14,000.
