Issue Notes
This issue went on sale 1939-05-18. According to Superman: The Complete History, M.C. Gaines told Siegel and Shuster what additional content (aside from the Action reprints) to create for this issue in a letter dated 1939-03-27. The Audit Bureau of Circulation files reveal that there were three printings of this issue in 1939 (500,000 copies, 250,000 copies, and 150,000 copies) (researched by Russ Maheras). The only difference noted is in the house ad for Action Comics #14, which has either an on sale date of "June 2nd" or just "Now on Sale" (researched by David Bachman). There is no number on this issue.
