    Batman #1 (DC, 1940) CGC VF 8.0 Cream to off-white pages. One of the most important and influential comics of all time, this landmark book currently ranks as number six (with a bullet) on Overstreet's listing of the Top Golden Age Comics. An almost overnight sensation, Batman exploded into the public consciousness in 1939 with the publication of Detective #27. Scarcely a year later, he and his youthful ward, Robin the Boy Wonder, were awarded their own book, joining Superman as one of DC's headliners. The front cover, with a grinning Batman and Robin swinging over the rooftops of a sleeping city, is an image familiar to millions having become an almost iconic image. The most recent CGC census information available to us has only two other copies of this issue graded higher (and not by much). Unrestored key books like this are becoming rare and rare in the marketplace, making this a treasure on so many levels. This copy must be seen to be believed and appreciated, so treat yourself with a long look at the first issue of an American classic going strong over 600 issues and 60 years later. Overstreet 2002 VF 8.0 value = $45,150.
