    Lame Yet Classic

    Let's just say: THE PLOT MAKES NO SENSE!

    Sure, it's the debut of a famous character. BUT....

    No, it's not worth several million dollars.

    The Cover

    Superman smashing a car on a rock and people running away from him... nothing to hate about it, but, then again, nothing to like about it.

    The Story

    Story? Theres a story in this thing? I guess it's kind of a story... NOT. A one-page origin of Superman. Superman saves a life. Superman defeats these guys who capture Lois Lane or something. Superman overhears something involving the president. WHAT'S GOING ON?

    I'm just glad I was born in the era where comics actually had plots.


    You know those comics that are worth a lot of money, but you still don't wanna sell e'm, you just wanna keep e'm? Let's just say this is not one of those comics.

It is the first appearance of Superman, Lois Lane, and quite possibly Perry White. Superman and Lois Lane though especially. This book is the start of a brand new DC Universe in a way and signaled the beginning of Golden Age of Comics. So how did this book go? Great!Seeing that I am reading this through The Superman Chronicles...

Okay now I know this issue is one of the most well known books in the history of comics but at the same time it's a colossal waste of money to anyone who buys it if you own it already through family heir loom props to you your rich. Sure Action Comics #1 will grow in value as time goes on but as far story telling for this classic goes it's rather mediocre. Hell it starts off in t...
