Sell Your Action Comics #23 Superman comic book

Superman was created by artist Joe Shuster and writer Jerry Siegel and debuted in summer of 1938 in Action Comics #1. Shuster and Siegel met in high school and soon began collaborating. Together they broke out in the comics world with More Fun Comics for National Comics Publications, the precursor to D.C. Comics.

Although the character Superman was first published in 1938, Shuster and Siegel began developing it in 1932. They originally had hoped to sell the character to a newspaper comic strip, but after several years of knocking on doors they settled for a comic book. Shuster and Siegel both came from Jewish immigrant families which is believed to have shaped their work as Superman is also an immigrant who is assimilating into American culture. Shuster and Siegel created other characters together including Jimmy Olsen, Superboy, Ultra-Humanite, Lois Lane and Lex Luther. While at D.C. Comics Siegel also created many other characters such as Saturn Queen, Chameleon Boy, Phantom Girl, Lightning Lord and Invisible Kid among others.

”Prince Valiant” Sunday Artwork by Hal Foster From 1939 — Perhaps the Most Recognizable Artwork by Hal Foster From ”Prince Valiant”, the Majestic Andelkrag Castle

One of the greatest pieces of artwork by Hal Foster in his career, the original artwork for the 120th ”Prince Valiant” Sunday comic strip from 28 May 1939. In this instantly recognizable piece — featured on the cover of Fantagraphics’ ”Prince Valiant Vol. 2: 1939-1940” and in numerous ”Prince Valiant” publications — Val sees the foreboding castle of Andelkrag in person, surrounded by Huns as they prepare to attack it. The six panel strip measures 26” x 34.5”, (the large Andelkrag panel measures 17” x 21” by itself), with incredible detail showing the seemingly impregnable fortress, the mountains behind it, the flames roiling up aside it and Prince Valiant standing upon a hillside, gazing at its beauty and enormity. In this strip, Val makes his approach and plunges into the river moat at darkness, to find a fire-raft built by the Huns in order to destroy Andelkrag’s bridge. As Prince Valiant destroys their handiwork, the Huns vow revenge in return. Artwork is signed by Foster on the second panel, inscribed to ”Edward W. Larson / with friendly greetings / Hal Foster”. With King Features Syndicate, Inc. label on fifth panel, with 1939 copyright. The date of 28 May 1939 appears on the fourth panel, along with ”120”, the number of this Prince Valiant strip in the life of the series. Artwork is mounted to board and matted to a size of 33” x 41.5”, with matting strips separating the panels. With minute amount of soiling, artwork is in near fine condition. Accompanied by the color newsprint of this artwork and two ”Prince Valiant” books featuring this strip. Sold for $70,461.
