    Batman #1 The Promise Collection Pedigree (DC, 1940) CGC GD 2.0 Cream to off-white pages. After some years chasing down All-American Comics #16 for the #4 ranking on Overstreet's Top 100 Golden Age Comics list, this classic is now tied with its DC brother, and most certainly will be in sole possession of the spot when 2022 rolls around. It took just one year for the Dark Knight to get his own title after first appearing in Detective Comics #27. We sold a copy in this grade in our September Signature auction for over $200,000. The issue has the first appearances of the Joker and the Cat (aka Catwoman). Co-creator Bob Kane and Jerry Robinson provided the classic cover and story art. CGC notes, "Cover detached." Overstreet 2021 GD 2.0 value = $61,500. CGC census 11/21: 9 in 2.0, 71 higher.
