    Batman #1 (DC, 1940) Condition: PR. One of the delights of this original-owner collection is that the Batman run starts with this very first issue. Bad news first: this copy's missing the back cover. But that will open the door for some lucky bidder to secure a copy of this key book at a relative bargain price -- we say "relative" because there should still be plenty of bidding interest on one of the most sought-after issues in comics, a book that's got the first appearances of the Joker and Catwoman and one of the most famous covers in the hobby. Overstreet 2006 GD 2.0 value = $7,317. From the Collection of Harold Curtis.
