    Superman #1 (DC, 1939) CGC GD- 1.8 Off-white pages. One of the most important comic books of all time. Superman #1 is the third most-valuable comic book, and the Near Mint price just jumped $100,000.00 from the 2017 to the 2018 Overstreet. This book will always be one of the Holy Grails of comic book collectors everywhere. Superman receives a new two page origin with this premiere issue, and the copy has an incredible back cover pin-up, the first one in comics. It presents as a higher grade, at first glance appearing from both the front and back to be in the VG range, with no missing pieces and no major creasing. Some staining and a mostly split spine keep the overall grade where it is. Overstreet 2018 GD 2.0 value = $86,000. CGC census 11/18: 3 in 1.8, 29 higher.
