    Detective Comics #47 Davis Crippen ("D" Copy) pedigree (DC, 1941) CGC VG/FN 5.0 Off-white pages. This copy of an early Batman appearance is in the top ten of all CGC graded copies. Batman, Crimson Avenger, and Slam Bradley are the key characters. Although the "Bob Kane" signature adorned all of the early Detective Comics covers (no matter who actually drew them), this one was indeed drawn by Kane, most likely with a Jerry Robinson assist. It also contains a full-page ad for All Star Comics #3 (first appearance of the Justice Society of America). Don't miss out on your chance to obtain this hard-to-find issue! Overstreet 2006 VG 4.0 value = $482; FN 6.0 value = $723. CGC census 7/06: 2 in 5.0, 7 higher. From the Crippen Collection.
