    Description

    Detective Comics #38 (DC, 1940) CGC VG- 3.5 Off-white to white pages. OK folks, this is a big one! It's the first-ever appearance of Master Dick Grayson, henceforth to be known as Robin, the Boy Wonder -- the original sidekick. For a VG-, this copy presents itself extremely well. We think that you'll agree when you see our scans at HA.com. The central cover image is intact and clean, the cover inks are bright and unfaded, and the right edge of the book shows no signs of chipping. This is a decent, respectable copy, in much better condition than the few that actually make it to auction. Bob Kane and Jerry Robinson provided the cover and interior art, and Fred Guardineer added interior art as well. Overstreet 2015 VG 4.0 value = $11,000. CGC census 11/15: 5 in 3.5, 23 higher.
