    Batman #1 (DC, 1940) CGC Qualified GD- 1.8 Off-white to white pages. The DC legend was introduced in Detective Comics in 1939, but one title wasn't enough to satiate collectors' demand for Batman stories. Here he gets his own title, which ran for more than 70 years and more than 700 issues. Values of the book continue to increase in virtually all grades and consistently outpace Overstreet's updates. It ranks #5 on Overstreet's Top 100 Golden Age Comics list. Herein are the first appearances of the Joker and the Cat (aka Catwoman). Bob Kane and Jerry Robinson classic cover and art. CGC notes, "Centerfold married, spine of cover completely split & re-attached with tape." Overstreet 2017 GD 2.0 value = $40,000.
