    Batman #1 (DC, 1940) CGC GD/VG 3.0 Cream to off-white pages. One of the five most valuable comic issues in the hobby, featuring the first appearances of the Joker and Catwoman, as well as one of the earliest appearances of Robin. A pop culture trophy by any standard! The classic cover is by Bob Kane and Jerry Robinson. As copies in this grade range go, we think you'll find much to like here -- there are no markings and no stains, and the smudging is minimal. Batman and the Joker are both household names, and we don't see that changing in our lifetimes, so while this comic won't be cheap, it might be high time to secure a copy before prices rise even further. CGC notes, "Tape on cover & interior cover." Overstreet 2020 GD 2.0 value = $57,300; VG 4.0 value = $114,600. CGC census 4/21: 7 in 3.0, 54 higher.
