    Description

    Detective Comics #27 (DC, 1939) CGC Apparent VF+ 8.5 Extensive (P) Off-white pages. This bears the highest numerical grade of any copy of this key that we've ever offered! The eye appeal of this professionally restored specimen would be tough to beat. Compare it to the unrestored 8.0 in this auction and make your own judgment, but the chance to have a book with the same attractiveness for literally hundreds of thousands of dollars less is enticing indeed.

    This is the first appearance of Batman in case you didn't know. It's a comic you can show off to even your non comic-loving friends!

    And of course it will make any collector's jaw drop as well, as the sterling colors make it so easy to pretend you're a kid spotting this one on the stands back in '39.

    CGC notes, "Restoration includes: color touch, pieces added, tear seals, cover cleaned, reinforced." Overstreet 2009 GD 2.0 value = $37,000; VG 4.0 value = $74,000; FN 6.0 value = $111,000; VF 8.0 value = $240,000.
