    Batman #1 (DC, 1940) CGC FN+ 6.5 Off-white pages. One of the most coveted comics of the Golden Age, Batman #1 offers many reasons for its vast popularity, including the first appearance of comicdom's quintessential villain, the Joker, as well as the Catwoman, the first villainess in comics. Also included is a non-Robin story intended for use in Detective #38. Batman's origin is retold in this issue, and the Joker's origin is told for the first time. Ranked as the sixth most valuable Golden Age comic by Overstreet, this book is elusive in grades even this high. Just a half-dozen unrestored copies have earned higher grades from CGC to date. Overstreet 2003 FN 6.0 value = $20,300.
