Action Comics #1 - Nestles Quick Reprint

Todays installment of Stories of Action Comics #1 takes a look at another reprint, we last looked at the Safeguard soap reprint. This one was a little later done in 1983 this one was a giveaway by Nestlé Quick, celebrating Supermans 45th anniversary. Cover is exactly the same as the original Action Comics #1. Cover is on newspaper type paper and is Approximately 7 1/4 " x 10 1/4 inches.  This reprint was a free giveaway from Nestlé released in January 1983, it contained only the 13 page Superman story from Action Comics #1. Inside the cover is a congratulation message for 45 years of Superman. 

Back cover contains a Nestlé Quick advertisement.(Nestle would do a similar reprint in 1987)
A CGC mint condition edition of this reprint will cost you about $300, much like the Safeguard Soap edition due to the paper stock it is hard to find these in mint condition. Non-graded copy will coat you between $25-$60. There are more o these out there then the Safeguard version. So as always get to hunting. Send us a photo if you find one and we will show of your find and the story here.
Good Luck on Your Hunt!
