LOOKING BACK AT THE COMMEMORATIVE EDITION OF ACTION COMICS #1

Action Comics #1 USPS Edition

One of my favorite items in my comic book collection is my copy of the 1998 reprint of Action Comics #1 (vol. 1). This was a commemorative edition courtesy of the United States Postal Service and reprinting the issue completely down to the adds that appeared at the time. Reading this comic for the first time was a history lesson in itself. The first thing I learned is that Action Comics started as an anthology comic with a total of eleven stories that included the first appearances of Zatara and of course the first super-hero Superman. A great piece of nostalgia indeed.
