    Detective Comics #60 (DC, 1942) CGC FN/VF 7.0 White pages. The original Air Wave made his first appearance in this issue; the character (and later his son, the second Air Wave) would have a long career in the DC universe. You might be surprised to know that at the beginning, Air Wave could just tap into phone calls and radio broadcasts, not transport himself through them -- the Golden Age was a simpler time, eh? And let's not forget Batman, especially since he's got the Joker to deal with in this issue! The cover is by Fred Ray and Jerry Robinson, and the Batman story was drawn by Robinson and Bob Kane. This is the highest-graded copy that CGC has certified of this issue to date. Overstreet 2005 FN 6.0 value = $507; VF 8.0 value = $1,056. CGC census 3/05: 1 in 7.0, none higher.
