    Superman #1-7 Plus Early Action Comics Bound Volume (DC, 1939). This bound volume not only includes Superman #1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7 (each of which had four Superman stories), but also the Superman stories from Action Comics #14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 20, 24, 26, 28, 29, 30, and 31 (without the backup features starring other characters) -- that's 40 Superman stories in all from 1939 and 1940! The only covers included are the front and back covers of Superman #1, which are in GD/VG condition. Tan edges, some one-inch tears in a handful of pages, and minor (1/4-inch) tears here and there, sometimes repaired with an unobtrusive piece of tape, are the only indications of the ravages of time and many re-readings, so there's nothing to deter your reading pleasure some 66 years later! This amazing bound volume would be well worth having for Superman #1 alone, which is the fourth most valuable comic book of all according to Overstreet! Finding and acquiring all of the individual comics would be quite a chore, and an extremely expensive one at that. Being able to page through the original stories like kids in 1939 did is quite a thrill that reprints can't come close to matching.
