Vintage Comic - Action Comics #425 (CGC)
Hard to imagine this today, but back when I first began reading comics, both Superman’s girl friend, Lois Lane, and Superman’s pal, Jimmy Olsen, had their own regularly published books. Neither character had super-powers, neither fought crime—not really—and both books generally featured three stories in each issue! So how to fill up all those pages? One word: transformations…

"… The original art for the cover of Action Comics #15 has sold at Heritage Auctions today for $286,800. The 1939 piece by Fred Guardineer was just the 5th Superman cover ever created (behind Action Comics #1, 7, 10, and 13), and is the earliest Superman cover known to still exist today.
This sale ranks as the 2nd highest price ever publicly paid for a piece of Golden Age (the period from the mid-1930s through the early/mid 1950s) American comic book art, behind the $380,000 sale of the cover of the Frank Frazetta Weird Science-Fantasy #29 cover in 2010…”
