    Detective Comics #124 The Promise Collection Pedigree (DC, 1947) CGC NM/MT 9.8 Off-white to white pages. This new-to-the-market pedigree has produced an uncanny number of NM+ and NM/MT Golden Age copies, and this is one of latter, an astounding 9.8 copy of Detective Comics #124! The "Sing a Song of Villainy" cover by Bob Kane and George Roussos has never looked better than on this single highest-graded CGC copy. Batman and Robin's interaction with the Joker takes on a musical tone in "The Crime Parade" cover story. The Joker's Ha-Hacienda hideout makes an appearance in the story, and the Boy Commandos get a backup feature with art by Curt Swan. It's worthy of noting that to date, just a dozen copies of #124 have been assigned a grade above VF 8.0. Just something to consider when placing your bid. Overstreet 2020 NM- 9.2 value = $3,700. CGC census 6/21: 1 in 9.8, none higher.
