    Batman #85 (DC, 1954) CGC VF+ 8.5 White pages. In this wild Batman issue, mistaken identities rule the day! As seen on Sheldon Moldoff's cover, a bad guy wants to wipe out the actors who are auditioning to play Batman, unless the real Masked Manhunter can rescue them in time. Things get even hairier in the issue's Joker appearance, which finds Batman trapped in Joker's body and the Fiendish Funster in the Caped Crusader's body! The interior art is by Moldoff as well. There's certainly no mistake about the identity of this copy -- it's the highest-graded copy of #85 that CGC has certified to date. Overstreet 2005 VF 8.0 value = $369; VF/NM 9.0 value = $565. CGC census 2/05: 1 in 8.5, none higher. From the Northern Lights Collection.
