Superman Comics #nn Ashcan (DC, 1939) CGC VF/NM 9.0 Off-white pages. For any Superman title collector, this is the ultimate item to acquire. This ashcan features the cover art from Action Comics #7 (which was rendered by Joe Siegel and Jerry Shuster) and a partial interior from Action Comics #8. DC produced Ashcans to secure the trademark and copyright to the title and logo. Hence, this is the first time that Superman Comics appeared on a published cover anywhere in history. Accordingly, this item might theoretically be valued much higher than the actual Superman #1 that got newsstand distribution. There are only two known copies of this ashcan, and both were purchased from Sol Harrison who worked his way up from a production assistant to President at DC comics. Again, as only a handful of ashcans were needed, they were produced by hand. The cover stock used is velox paper, which is the same material used to shoot the completed artwork of a regular comic book. Velox paper is noted for its ability to create crisp and clear lines from the artwork. Consequently, the detail on ashcans is unsurpassed. This ultimate Superman collectible has staples that are about an inch off center that go clean through to the other side of the comic. The cover is hand trimmed with nary a detracting factor. Once the importance of ashcans are fully realized by the marketplace, their values should soar.
