    Detective Comics #114 (DC, 1946) CGC VF- 7.5 Off-white to white pages. This is a mighty fine copy of a black cover issue -- it looks fantastic from the front, and we can only speculate how high it would have been graded were it not for a small tear on the back cover. The issue has the Joker's "Acrostic of Crime," and if you guessed that the acrostic in question spells out J-O-K-E-R, you know your Clown Prince of Crime. Win Mortimer drew the cover and the story, and Curt Swan added a Boy Commandos feature. Overstreet 2006 VF 8.0 value = $650. CGC census 1/06: 4 in 7.5, 4 higher. From the Collection of Harold Curtis.
