Action Comics

Action Comics is the comic book series that will forever be known for introducing the world to Superman. Teenagers Jerry Siegel[?] and Joe Shuster launched their creation with Action Comics #1 in June of 1938. The character of the dynamic Man of Steel was an instant hit, and he permanently changed the medium of comic books and comic strips.

Action Comics was soon followed by the Superman comic book series, and a wealth of other comics starring numerous costumed superheroes.

(See Superman for more information about the Man of Steel. This entry should deal more with the history of the comic book itself.)
