Superboy

For DC, the popularity of Superman in the 40's was so great that we started seeing a steady trickle of titles dedicated to his supporting characters hit the stands.

Not that SUPERBOY technically fits into this mold - he was, afterall, STILL Superman, just as a boy.

This series centered around his teenage years, growing up in Smallville and living the lives and loves of any other teen, but with the added burden of being very different from his peers!

An array of colorful conflicts and villains constantly entered young Clark Kent's life, and he eventually met and became the defacto-leader of The Legion of Super Heroes within these pages. The Superboy comic became very popular, and managed to survive the superhero drought of the 50's only to become more saleable in the following decades!

As per usual, the earlier stuff you have is the more valuable, and remains a comer in collector's circles!

The highest grade single copies of VF- 7.5 and FN/VF 7.0 have yet to go on sale, making for slow movement below. It's not a stretch to predict positive growth in the future, given that a second price decline from the 2010 bechmark is unlikely.
