Action Comics #1 Original & Authentic 1938 10c DC Comic 1st Superman WHITE PAGES
THE Blue Chip Comic Book Investment - 1st appearance of Superman, Lois Lane, Zatara

Sparkle City Comics is proud to offer this AUTHENTIC AND ORIGINAL Action Comics #1. This is not a reprint or anything other than THE HOLY GRAIL OF COMIC INVESTING!  This is by far the most visually stunning, yet affordable copy that has been available over the last 20 years. This book has the appearance of a 3.0+. This Action #1 has unprecedented beautiful WHITE pages which show nearly no signs of aging over the last 80 years.

Action Comics #1 is by all means THE key book in all of comics. The most sought after, the most infamous, and the most valued comic of all time. Introducing not only one of the most iconic and well-known superheroes of all time but actually introducing an all new era of comics and introducing the superhero genre to begin with. This book is absolutely one that has defined an integral part of our society in generations to come with creating this amazing genre that made us all fall in love with comic books. Introducing Superman, Lois Lane, Zatara, Marco Polo, Tex Thompson, Pep Morgan, Chuck Dawson & Scoop Scanlon this book contains almost more than any comic can hold these days.

Without detracting from this books amazing eye appeal, this book has some condition flaws. Specifically this Action #1 is missing the centerfold. The next wrap is also detached and split down the middle. Restoration includes: Color Touch on inside cover. Piece fill and support to cover. Cover cleaned. Staples replaced. Restoration would be in the 4 extent range. 3rd party grading would call this a .5, incomplete with (slight restoration) color touch, cover cleaned, reinforced, pieces added and staples replaced. The book presents as a much higher grade! This is a very rare chance to acquire an “affordable” copy of the most important comic book ever with flaws that while effect the grade, do not detract from the overall appearance, presentation and structural integrity.

Action Comics #1 is widely known and accepted as a “bulletproof investment”. The combination of scarcity and iconic imagery catapult this book above all other key issues in the entire comic book world. A 9.0 copy of Action Comics #1 sold for 3.2 Million 4 years ago. With values of Action #1 increasing over 20% year over year, that comic would sell for nearly DOUBLE just 4 short years later. Opportunities to own a copy of this comic do not come around very often, Sparkle City Comics is honored to be the custodian of this piece of American History and offer it to our valued clientele on ebay.

Also any order that is under 3lbs in weight can be shipped through USPS First Class International, while we do not recommend this method (for reasons stated above) we will provide it as an option when applicable.
