For those of who read comics in the 70s, the phrase "Famous First Edition" immediately brings back memories of those great, oversized full reprints of famous comics -- and the first one in the series was Action Comics #1, naturally.

I did enjoy reading the Superman story, but this item is presented as "Action Comics #1". It didn't say anything about just being the Superman story from that issue.

I'm not furious about it or anything, but just wanted my fellow comics fans to know that you're not getting the full reprint here.

You only get the Superman story, not the other stories from the comic. I was hoping to see the other stories that are not normally reprinted. Disappointing.

If you want to read the original origin story and that is it, it is a great purchase. I was hoping to come across the original ads in the comic book, but they weren't scanned. Kind of a bummer but for a dollar you can't go wrong.

I was so delighted when, a couple of decades ago, DC finally reprinted this first issue of ACTION. This is the first appearance of SUPERMAN in any form other than the inventors' imaginations. This was the first time that any of us saw Superman jump over a building. He had not yet developed the ability to fly.

Even if you don't read Superman (or watch him in movies, television shows or other formats), you will want to be sure to read this version, the original, just to see how much his legend has changed over these decades of growth.

I highly recommend that you get this reproduction of Action #1. You will enjoy it.

It is a very entertaining idea. It's a picture book about a man from another planet with some very impressive abilities. I would like to see more stories about this character.

This looks great on my Kindle Fire. Nice sharp images. It must have been scanned from a reprint of the issue. The panels enlarge with a double tap, and you can progress through the panels with a right to left swipe across the screen. When you get to the last panel on the page, another swipe will get you to the next page.

If you have wondered about the beginning comics of Superman, this book will answer some of your questions. For example: did you know that in the beginning Superman could leap over buildings but could not fly. Buy this book; you will enjoy it.

A good reproduction of the first Superman story. The only problem is that, due to the quality of the 1939 printing, it is hard to read on a 7 inch screen. You must often tap to increase the single panels. Would probably be fine on the 8.9 inch screen.
