    Superman #4 (DC, 1940) CGC FN/VF 7.0 Cream to off-white pages. Superman's number one foe, Lex Luthor, made his second and third appearances in two different stories in this issue. We'll note, however, that the bald gent with the "oy vey" expression on the cover is not Lex -- remember, Luthor had red hair when he first appeared, and fairly shaggy hair at that! Also of note is the second mention of the Daily Planet -- Clark Kent had worked for the Daily Star in his first two years' worth of stories. The cover and most of the art are by Superman's co-creator Joe Shuster. CGC notes, "4-inch crease on centerfold. Small water stain inside front cover." Overstreet 2005 FN 6.0 value = $1,704; VF 8.0 value = $3,976. CGC census 2/05: 3 in 7.0, 7 higher.
