    Superman #5 (DC, 1940) CGC VF+ 8.5 Off-white to 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 a few to be impressed by his ripping steel bars from windows. Lex Luthor, with red hair no less, makes his fourth appearance in this issue. Overstreet 2005 VF 8.0 value = $3,164; VF/NM 9.0 value = $5,082. CGC census 3/05: 4 in 8.5, 1 higher.
