    Detective Comics #35 Davis Crippen ("D" Copy) pedigree (DC, 1940) CGC FN- 5.5 Off-white pages. Just one copy of this book has been graded higher by CGC to date; combine that with the fact that copies of this issue always seem to have restoration if you can find one at all, and you have a book that will be circled in many a bidder's catalog. This issue marked the beginning of Batman's run as the permanent cover star of this title, a streak that's still going 66 years later! The issue is ranked among the 100 most valuable Golden Age comics by Overstreet, and among other things, it's famous for its splash panel, which shows Batman holding a smoking gun. Don't pass up this pedigree gem. Overstreet 2006 FN 6.0 value = $3,168. CGC census 6/06: 1 in 5.5, 1 higher. From the Crippen Collection.
