    Description

    Detective Comics #27 (DC, 1939) CGC GD/VG 3.0 Cream to off-white pages. Big, bold, and beautiful, this is Number Two on Overstreet's Top 100 Golden Age Comics list, behind only Action Comics #1. Batman's creator, Bob Kane, just 22 years old when this issue hit the stands, handled cover and interior art on this issue which introduced the Caped Crusader and Commissioner Gordon. Even at this grade, CGC has certified just five other unrestored copies with higher grades, none higher than Very Fine. CGC notes, "two small pieces of tape on spine." A great, uncommon opportunity for one giant of a comic book. Overstreet 2003 GD 2.0 value = $31,000; VG 4.0 value = $62,000.
