    Superman #5 (DC, 1940) CGC Apparent FN- 5.5 Slight (A) Off-white pages. Superman was still getting his kicks showing off on the covers of these very early issues. Who could blame him? The newness of his first appearance in Action Comics #1, only two years previously, meant there were still members of the public who could be impressed by his ripping steel bars from windows. A red-headed Lex Luthor makes his fourth appearance in this issue. Joe Shuster, Wayne Boring, Paul Cassidy, and Paul Lauretta all contribute art to this issue. CGC notes, "Restoration includes: small amount of glue on spine of cover, tear seal to cover." Overstreet 2003 GD 2.0 value = $430; VG 4.0 value = $860; FN 6.0 value = $1,290.
