    Description

    Detective Comics #33 (DC, 1939) CGC VG+ 4.5 Off-white pages. Overstreet gives a thumbs-up "classic" designation to the Kane/Robinson cover, and this issue provides the first origin of the recently introduced superhero. Gerber advises a "less than average" number of copies of this issue exist, and this mid-grade copy has as many other copies listed behind it as ahead of it in CGC's latest census. Outside of issues #1 and #27, this issue ranks the most valuable in the entire storied run of DC's namesake origin, outranking even #38. Overstreet 2002 GD 2.0 value = $3,570; FN 6.0 value = $10,710.
