    Detective Comics #26 Mile High pedigree (DC, 1939) CGC VF 8.0 White pages. This is one of the few Detective issues that had eluded us up until now, but since we're believers in going straight to the top, we're offering the Mile High copy here. Evidently a smudge on the back cover kept this one from the usual tip-top grade, but other than that it's the kind of well-preserved Edgar Church book we know, love, and wish we owned. This was of course the last issue of this title before you-know-who's first appearance. Highlights here are a Fred Guardineer cover, Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster's Spy, some Bob Kane gag features, and a Fu Manchu story. Overstreet 2005 VF 8.0 value = $1,875. CGC census 3/05: 1 in 8.0, 1 higher.
