    Description

    Detective Comics #33 (DC, 1939) CGC FR/GD 1.5 Cream to off-white pages. Major issue in the run, ranking behind only #1 and #27. The first-told origin of Batman is here, and Bob Kane has provided a "classic" cover for the occasion. Kane also did some interior art, as did Sheldon Moldoff and Fred Guardineer. Like so many of the early issues of this title, it's "uncommon," making even this grade highly desirable. Overstreet 2008 GD 2.0 value = $4,125. CGC census 1/09: 1 in 1.5, 20 higher.
