    Detective Comics #58 (DC, 1941). This landmark issue of Detective features the debut of the #2 villain in the Dark Knight's Rogue's Gallery -- namely The Penguin. Highly prized by Batman collectors for this historic debut, this issue also features a stunning cover by Jerry Robinson (from Fred Ray layouts). This is an absolutely magnificent high-grade copy of this coveted issue, with a bright, crisp appearance and stunning colors. By far the highest graded copy certified as of this writing (the next closest copy is a 7.5), this is truly an investment grade book, and incredibly rare in this condition. CGC NM 9.4 Cream to off-white pages. Overstreet 2001NM 9.4 value = $4,200.
