Superman #14 (DC, 1942). This issue is a perennial favorite among collectors. In and of itself, it has one of the very finest Golden Age covers, and is universally held to be a true classic. Additionally, it hits on many sub-genres of collecting, including black covers, patriotic covers, flag covers, Superman covers, Fred Ray covers...the list goes on and on. This particular copy is beautiful, very possibly the prettiest we have ever seen. The field is a solid matte black, yet retains a rich velvety luster. The palette used consists of all primary colors, resulting in a very high-impact composition. Overall the book displays a freshness seldom seen in a 60-plus year-old comic, with outstanding page quality. There is a reading crease that runs the length of the spine, and a 3/4" corner crease at the bottom right of the front cover, and near the top of the spine, on the back cover is some slight insect damage, with the coating of the paper affected in an area less than 1/2" x 1/4". In most regards, the book has the color saturation, freshness and structure of a pedigree quality book. There is some evidence of minor restoration having been done to this book, including very slight color touch and pressing, and we therefor offer this book with an Apparent grade. Condition: Apparent FN/VF White pages. Overstreet 2001 FN 6.0 value = $915; NM 9.4 value = $3,200.
