he cover of Action Comics #1, published in 1938, marked the first appearance of Superman, and has become an iconic image in the world of comics. It depicts Superman in his classic garb - a skintight suit with a sweeping cape - holding up a car with ease while hoodlums flee in panic. This cover illustration is widely regarded as the embodiment of Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster's vision of the superhero, and it has become an enduring symbol of Superman's strength and heroism.
In recent years, original copies of Action Comics #1 have become some of the most valuable and sought-after comic books in the world. In 2010, a pristine copy of the comic sold for over $1 million at auction, and a copy in excellent condition fetched a record-breaking $3.25 million in 2021.
Alan Quah and Mufizal Mokhtar's 11.2" pewter sculpture pays tribute to this iconic cover, bringing Superman to life in three dimensions. The figure is posed in mid-air, with his cape unfurled behind him, and he holds the remains of a car in one hand, revealing a meticulously modeled chassis and engine underneath. This stunning tribute captures the classic look and feel of Superman, and is a must-have for fans of the Man of Steel.
