    Detective Comics #44 (DC, 1940) CGC VG/FN 5.0 Off-white pages. Science fiction stories weren't common for Batman until the 1950s, so here's one of the earliest such tales, with the Dynamic Duo traveling to another dimension. The visuals are courtesy of Bob Kane and his helpers Jerry Robinson and George Roussos. Also of note is that the Crimson Avenger gets a new costume (more "superhero-like" garb) in this issue. Overstreet 2006 VG 4.0 value = $518; FN 6.0 value = $777. CGC census 1/06: 2 in 5.0, 5 higher. From the Collection of Harold Curtis.
