    Detective Comics #118 The Promise Collection Pedigree (DC, 1946) CGC NM/MT 9.8 Off-white to white pages. Another unbelievable copy from the newly discovered Promise Collection Pedigree that sits alone atop the CGC census for the issue. Batman and Robin star with the Harlequin of Hate, the Joker, on the Dick Sprang cover, while inside the issue, Howard Sherman illustrates "The Royal Flush Crimes" story. We'd bet money that the Dynamic Duo will flush the Joker's devious plans right down the drain! Curt Swan provided art for the Boy Commandos backup feature. Best not run with this copy... those razor sharp corners could put your eye out! And if they don't, that near-perfect bright yellow cover might just blind you. Overstreet 2020 NM- 9.2 value = $4,100. CGC census 6/21: 1 in 9.8, none higher.
