    Batman #40 (DC, 1947) CGC VF- 7.5 Off-white to white pages. A comical Joker cover is the highlight of this issue, which sees the Madman of Mirth going on a crime spree with a "bad luck" theme (hence the black cat, broken mirror etc. on the cover). The book has a Jack Burnley cover and Dick Sprang interior art. CGC notes, "1-inch tear on 7th page." Overstreet 2005 VF 8.0 value = $963. CGC census 2/05: 6 in 7.5, 17 higher.
