    Description

    Detective Comics #36 (DC, 1940) CGC FN+ 6.5 Cream to off-white pages. A blue label is a welcome sight here, as it seems that when this comic comes along, it's almost always a restored copy. This very early appearance of Bob Kane's Batman is also the origin and first appearance of Doctor Hugo Strange, the first in a long line of major villains that would battle Batman throughout the ages. Followers of Bat-firsts will be interested to note that in the story itself, Batman dons his distinctive finned gloves for the first time. Overstreet 2005 FN 6.0 value = $2,322; VF 8.0 value = $5,418. CGC census 3/05: 1 in 6.5, 1 higher.
