    Detective Comics #38 Trimmed (DC, 1940) CBCS Restored FN/VF 7.0 Moderate (A) Off-white pages. The first appearance of Robin the Boy Wonder started one of the most imitated concepts in all of comics -- the sidekick! Just ask Bucky, Roy the Super-Boy, Sandy, Speedy, Pinky, Toro, etc., etc. Apparently, crime-fighting is more fun in pairs, just as these wonderful Golden Age keys are just more fun when they've been lovingly restored to look as appealing as this copy! CBCS notes, "Amateur Restoration Includes: color touch on cover, pieces added to cover, cover & centerfold reinforced, spine split sealed, tear seals, cover cleaned. Bottom of cover & right edge trimmed." Overstreet 2015 GD 2.0 value = $5,500; VG 4.0 value = $11,000; FN 6.0 value = $16,500.
