This is a book by Tony Isabella; when asked to compile this list, he said: "Only a thousand?" He says this is the Golden Age; people can enjoy reprints of early ones, and the great ones published today. I admit to not knowing much about comic books, and I hope this list will be an education.

"Superman saves an innocent woman from execution, slaps around a wife-beater, rescues Lois Lane from hoodlums, and then kidnaps a lobbyist trying to involve the USA in a South American war. Not bad for his first day on the job. Note: Action Comics was an anthology title; credits here and elsewhere in this chapter are only for the Superman story."
