    Batman #41 Mile High pedigree (DC, 1947) CGC NM+ 9.6 Off-white to white pages. What Batman fan wouldn't love this one? First of all, the zany "little green men" scene is this title's first science fiction cover -- what became a common sight during the 1950s was quite a novelty in 1947. The cover and interior art are by Jim Mooney. Then there's a Penguin appearance, in which the Man of a Thousand Umbrellas announces that he's opening a bird shop and going straight from now on. If you guessed that's just a ruse to cover up his latest crime spree, you know your Penguin! Jim Mooney drew the cover as well as both of the Batman stories. This Mile High copy is tied for the highest grade that CGC has assigned to date, and considering this issue's black cover, don't count on finding a better one. Overstreet 2005 NM- 9.2 value = $1,075. CGC census 2/05: 2 in 9.6, none higher.
