CGC Universal Grade [Blue Label]. A golden age gem featuring one of the earliest Superman stories wherein Lois Lane and Clark Kent compete for a Daily Planet scoop on the potential collapse of the Valleyho Dam - setting in place the seminal relationship dynamics between Superman/Clark and Lois!
An overall very presentable copy with just some small spine flaws mostly determining its grade. Below are the grader notes taken directly from CGC. General note about Newtons Rings.Encapsulated comic books sometime exhibit a visual distortion, when held at certain angles, of oily rainbow patterns which are named Newtons Rings. These anomalies are not on the book itself, and are just an effect of the cases inner well pressing against the outer capsule. The Newtons Rings can occur in varying degrees from barely noticeable to significantly visible. There is unfortunately very little to be done in terms of re-holdering books which exhibit these rings, as there is no guarantee from the company responsible that the effect will not occur on the re-holdered book to the same degree or more. If this effect is bothersome to you as a collector, we strongly suggest sending a note to the company responsible for encapsulating the books and urging them to rework their holdering processes to cease the occurrence of this effect.
