    Detective Comics #62 (DC, 1942) CGC FN- 5.5 White pages. The Joker's second cover appearance (in any title) makes this an issue to take note of, especially since artist Jerry Robinson came up with such a memorable image! The fiendish story is memorable in itself -- a deceased comedian's will calls for a competition among the nation's funnymen, and whoever comes up with the funniest joke inherits the fortune. The Joker's mad that he wasn't invited to join, and starts murdering the contestants! A job for Batman if ever there was one. Overstreet 2005 FN 6.0 value = $786. CGC census 3/05: 1 in 5.5, 6 higher.
