Action Comics 15 Cover Art
Description: DALLAS – The earliest Superman cover art known to exist – Fred Guardineer’s thrilling visage of the Man of Steel from Action Comics #15 – may bring $200,000+ in Heritage Auctions’ Feb. 20-22 Vintage Comics Signature® Auction in New York. The rare work joins nearly 1,200 lots, including two Silver Age milestones: Amazing Fantasy #15 – the first appearance of Spider-Man – in 9.0 grade by CGC, and the original cover art to Tales of Suspense #84 by Jack Kirby and Frank Giacoia.

“Guardineer’s cover is the earliest Superman cover art in existence,” said Ed Jaster, Senior Vice President at Heritage. “It is a blockbuster piece of early American comic art history and a fitting companion to the landmark finds in this auction.”

Fans who enjoyed the first offering of the Don/Maggie Thompson Pedigree Collection still have a range of high-grade books to choose from with a 9.4 grade CGC NM copy of Tales of Suspense #39, the first appearance of Iron Man.

Earliest known Superman cover art brings $286,800 in public auction

Original cover art from Action Comics #15 sells at Heritage Auctions in New York for $286,800; joins 9.0 CGC-Graded Amazing Fantasy #15, Spider-Man’s first appearance, which brought $191,200

NEW YORK – The earliest Superman cover art known to exist – Fred Guardineer’s action-packed tableau from 1939 of the Man of Steel from Action Comics #15 – brought $286,800 at Heritage Auctions on Feb. 22 in New York.

“Guardineer’s cover is the earliest Superman cover art in existence,” said Ed Jaster, Senior Vice President at Heritage, “and an absolute treasure of comics history. A price like this shows just how much collectors covet a rarity like this.”

The Action #15 cover depicts Superman in full hero mode, saving a distressed U.S. Submarine just a few feet from a presumably bad end in the depths of the ocean, without seemingly an ounce of strain.

It was purchased by Richard Evans, of Houston, TX, who owns Bedrock City Comics Company. He has said that he plans to display the cover in his shop.

“I’m just a big fan,” he said.

The sale of the Action Comics #15 cover art comes a day after a pristine 9.0 CGC-Graded copy of Amazing Fantasy #15, the first appearance of Spider-Man, sold for $191,200, the highest price ever realized for this comic in this grade.
