Atlas Publications Action Comics 1

This rare South African reprint was published in 1959 by Atlas Publications (S.A. Magazine Co.).
Cover and Interior pages are newsprint - so after being read and swopped a few times they would likely be falling apart and thrown away.
These titles were printed in a smaller size (245x167mm) compared to the original DC Comics title.
Cover and Interior printed in colour.
The printing reproduction from the original was very good quality. This issue is only 24 pages.

Cover of Action Comics 1 South African Edition and the Cover of DC Comics' Action Comics 256:
This South African Edition contains two of the three stories from DC Comics' Action Comics 256:
"The Superman of the Future!"
"The Great Supergirl Mirage!"
