<!--more-->Gee Wally, isn't the internet cool? While looking for a place to just show you the cover of the first Superman comic, I found a place where you can read the whole thing, panel by panel, page by page.  It's very much an opportunity for you to put your eyeballs on some history.  So without further ado, <a href="http://xroads.virginia.edu/~ug02/yeung/actioncomics/cover.html">hit this jump</a> to check out the first issued of Action Comics and SUPERMAN!
