    Batman #1 (DC, 1940) CGC VG/FN 5.0 Off-white to white pages. It's already ranked in the Top 5 on Overstreet's Top 100 Golden Age Comics list, and it routinely garners considerably over-Guide prices. Most of the copies we see are restored or unrestored books with lower grades than our offering, a major highlight of this auction. Batman had first appeared the previous year in Detective Comics #27, but the Joker and the Cat (Catwoman) didn't make their debuts until this issue. Bob Kane and Jerry Robinson cover and art. Overstreet 2019 VG 4.0 value = $110,600; FN 6.0 value = $165,900. CGC census 8/19: 6 in 5.0, 26 higher.
