    Batman #1 (DC, 1940) CGC FN- 5.5 Cream to off-white pages. The issue is currently ranked #5 on Overstreet's Top 100 Golden Age Comics list, and will likely move into at least a tie for the #4 spot in Overstreet's 2019 edition. Like Superman, Batman became too large for just one comic book, so his eponymous title launched shortly after the Caped Crusader's first appearance in Detective Comics #27 the previous year. The two titles ran concurrently for over 70 years! Bob Kane and Jerry Robinson collaborated on the art, including a back cover pin-up of Batman and Robin. The issue featured the first appearance of both the Joker and the Cat (later known as Catwoman). Overstreet 2018 FN 6.0 value = $150,000. CGC census 5/19: 4 in 5.5, 22 higher. From the Robert Huber Collection.
