About Superman #1
Due to the Superman character's popularity after his premiere in Action Comics #1, National Allied Publications decided to launch an entirely new magazine featuring a single character, which at that time was unprecedented. Superman #1 appeared on the shelves in the summer of 1939. Superman now also had the distinction of being the first ever hero-character featured in more than one comic magazine.
Just before the doomed planet Krypton exploded, a scientist placed his infant son within an experimental rocket ship and set it on a course to Earth. On our planet, that orphan boy discovered that he was gifted with amazing strength. Guided by the values of his loving foster parents, he grew up to become Superman, champion of the oppressed sworn to helping those in need! Own your personal copy of the exciting first issue by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, featuring the daring exploits of the Man of Steel.
