    Superman #1 (DC, 1939) CGC PR 0.5 Cream to off-white pages. The one and only Man of Steel gets his own book at last with this title. Superman's origin is retold in this issue that is masterfully drawn by Superman's creators Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster. This American icon of truth, justice, and the American way has been a symbol of enduring greatness through several wars, the flower power of the sixties, and the tumultuous roaring 1990s and beyond. While this copy may not be the highest-graded copy CGC has certified to date, it is still a Superman #1 -- a book that we find even slightly less often than copies of Action Comics #1. It's a milestone book, second in historical importance only to Action #1, when you're talking about comic book issues of Krypton's most famous native. This issue is complete, so view the close-up images at our website to determine if this copy's the one for you! Overstreet 2015 GD 2.0 value = $50,000. CGC census 11/15: 5 in 0.5, 36 higher.
