    Description

    Detective Comics #42 (DC, 1940) CGC FN+ 6.5 Off-white pages. Batman takes pride in his sidekick's accomplishments on this cover by Bob Kane and Jerry Robinson. Those two artists also teamed up for the Batman story inside the book. For some reason, this issue is less common than those before or after it -- it's the first time we've seen #42 here at Heritage, and CGC has only certified six unrestored copies to date. Our offering is bested by only one copy in CGC's current census. Overstreet 2004 FN 6.0 value = $720;VF 8.0 value = $1,500.
