A limited edition of 200 individually numbered pieces worldwide.

The 1938 premier issue of Action Comics is a landmark in popular culture, simultaneously introducing Superman, and the modern ideal of the superhero. In a single image, its cover art captures the crux of character and genre; a human figure of impressive physique, a close-fitting costume at once heroic and modern, apart yet somehow familiar, combating crime without weapons bar extraordinary abilities.

In 2010, the comic book becomes the first to sell at auction for US$1 million, with a specimen fetching over US$3 million in 2014.

Illustrator Alan Quah and sculptor Mufizal Mokhtar’s sensitive homage reimagines Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster’s Superman with spectacular effect, with 24K gilt in a retro-style patina embellishing the cast pewter Superman. The hoodlums’ crumpled vehicle, with its removable bodywork, is reproduced in bonded porcelain. A sepia-toned facsimile of the original comic enhances the period feel.

Malaysians Quah and Mufizal, both highly respected by the international comics and collectibles communities, collaborated on this limited edition.
Size H28.5cm including base x 20cm x 19cm

A limited edition of 800 individually numbered pieces worldwide.

Myths develop over time. In the case of Superman’s, it emerges fully-formed in 1938, depicted on the cover of Action Comics #1. Hoodlums flee a powerfully-built figure garbed in a close-fitting suit with a sweeping cape as he smashes the car he holds effortlessly aloft; the embodiment of Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster’s Superman in a single iconic image.

In 2010, the comic book becomes the first to sell at auction for US$1 million. Copies from its original print run continue to rank amongst the world’s most expensive, with a specimen fetching over US$3 million in 2014.

Illustrator Alan Quah and sculptor Mufizal Mokhtar’s sensitive homage brings the cover to spectacular three-dimensional life. Cast in pewter, a recognisably retro Superman defies gravity, cape unfurled. He carries the remains of the unfortunate vehicle, in bonded porcelain. Removing its crumpled bodywork reveals a meticulously modeled chassis and engine.
