About the Comic

Superman Action Comics Figurine

The year is 1938 and both Clark Kent and Superman make their first appearance in DC Comics with an origin story as known and told many times before. An alien child in his infancy is sent down to Earth by his scientist father as his home planet is destroyed, and this infant is found by a passing motorist who takes him to an orphanage. This child is then named Clark Kent. Learning as he grew that he had capabilities and superpowers unlike others, Clark dedicated his life to becoming Superman.

Entitled “Superman, Champion of the Oppressed”, Action Comics #1 is an issue from the series Action Comics Volume 1. The story was written by Jerry Siegel, and the cover art was by Joe Shuster and Jack Adler. The iconic introduction to Superman made the original copies rank amongst the most expensive in the world. In 2010, Action Comics #1 was the first ever comic book to sell at an auction for $1 million, and in 2014, a mint condition copy sold for $3 million. This was also the comic book to introduce other familiar names in Superman’s world such as Lois Lane, John Kent, Mary Kent, and Jor-L.

The Figurine

The Superman Action Comics #1 comic cover figurine is a limited edition statue with only 800 and 200 individually numbered pieces worldwide, for the pewter satin and gilt 24K finish respectively. In the original comic cover art, Superman is seen in his full superhero suit of blue and red, effortlessly holding an entire car above his head and striking fear in the hearts of hoodlums who struggle to flee the scene. This rendition of the comic cover art by Alan Quah and Mufizal Mokhtar shows the Man of Steel in shiny satin pewter holding popping out of the comic book, giving an illusion of elevation, holding the front part of a damaged car made of black porcelain. The entire statue stands at 11.23 inches in height and measures a width of 7.88 by 7.49 inches.

This Superman figurine not only captures the iconic image that pays homage to the embodiment of Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, but also does justice to the superhero with the exquisite level of detail in its craftsmanship. The muscular definition of Superman is clearly seen by the effects of the lines and creases it creates on his suit, and the dominance of the Man of Steel against the petty criminals captured with a serious facial expression.
