    Batman #1-6 Bound Volume (DC, 1940-41). If this doesn't turn the head of a Bat-fan, nothing will: These are copies of the first six issues of Batman that have been trimmed and bound into a hardcover volume, collecting such key elements as the first few appearances of perennial foes the Joker and Catwoman, and the first official appearance of the Batmobile. The art is by Batman creator Bob Kane, with inks and background work by the likes of Jerry Robinson and George Roussos.

    The back cover of each issue was removed as part of the binding process; otherwise, each issue is complete. The last page of issue #6 has pulled loose from the contents and the second-to-last page has a lengthy tear to it; otherwise, the comics are in overall very nice condition with surprisingly little wear and bright glossy covers that are almost pristine; the pages are supple with mild to moderate tanning to them and the interior covers.

    Every single one of these issues is a rare and desirable item in its own right; to have all of them together in one volume is a rare and unique treat that any collector would be proud to own. Overstreet 2010 VG 4.0 value for comics = $32,564.
