    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! And the eye appeal of this professionally restored specimen would be tough to beat. This is the first appearance of Batman in case you didn't know, a comic second only to Action Comics #1 in value, and the only serious candidate to perhaps surpass it for the top spot one day. It's a comic you can show off to even your non comic-loving friends -- with this year's Batman movie smashing box office records, the character could be said to be more popular than ever!

    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 2008 GD 2.0 value = $35,000; VG 4.0 value = $70,000; FN 6.0 value = $105,000; VF 8.0 value = $225,000.
