    Detective Comics #18 Billy Wright Pedigree (DC, 1938) CGC VF- 7.5 White pages. Gerber rates this issue a "7" ("scarce") on its Scarcity Index, and unrestored copies are even tougher to come by. Batman was nine months away and Superman had been in just three comics when this issue hit the stands. Sax Rohmer's infamous villain Fu Manchu was actually the star of a feature at the time, and the equally pulpy lineup of good guys included Slam Bradley, Speed Saunders, Buck Marshall, Bart Regan, and Cosmo "the phantom of disguise". The classic cover is one of Creig Flessel's finest. Overstreet 2019 VF 8.0 value = $11,000. CGC census 5/20: 2 in 7.5, 3 higher.
