    Description

    Batman #1 (DC, 1940) CGC GD- 1.8 Cream to off-white pages. One of the most desirable 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. Offered here is an attractive low grade copy that contains, according to CGC, "Two pieces off first two pages affects art, not story. Tape on interior spine and pages." This book is unrestored, the colors are vibrant, and the central cover image is intact. 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 comic by Overstreet, this book is truly what the Golden Age is all about. Own a piece of comic history without taking out a second mortgage. Overstreet 2002 GD 2.0 value = $6,450.
