The first Superman comic book

Superman is the brainchild of writer Jerry Siegel and artist Joe Shuster. During its early years, Superman was turned down by every comic syndicate editor in the US but then came along a DC Comics publisher who was looking for material for his new title, Action Comics. He immediately liked the idea and as they say the rest is history. This is the cover of the first comic book that Superman appeared in. It is the June 1938 Issue No.1 of Action Comics. You can view the scans of the comic here.
