    Description

    Detective Comics #33 (DC, 1939) CGC VF 8.0 Off-white to white pages. The Caped Crusader's fourth cover appearance has him strapping on a gun, a rare sight for the character who would rather use his wits, gadgets, and fists to bring in the bad guys. This exceptional issue also features the first-ever origin of the Batman, in a two-page introduction that would be reprinted many times over the years. You can see why this is currently #12 on Overstreet's Top 100 Golden Age Books list! This solid VF copy displays beautifully, with vivid cover colors and an overall sharp, well-centered appearance. Bob Kane cover and art. Overstreet 2011 VF 8.0 value = $42,000. CGC census 4/12: 1 in 8.0, 3 higher.
