    Description

    Batman #1 (DC, 1940) CGC Apparent FN+ 6.5 Slightly brittle pages. One of the most sought-after issues in the comic book hobby. Like many of the other major keys, this one is significantly more expensive now than just a few years ago. A blue-label copy in this grade is frankly out of reach for most, with a likely $100,000-plus price tag, so a nicely restored specimen is a very appealing alternative. The issue has the first appearances of two major characters indeed, the Joker and Catwoman, and there's a Hugo Strange appearance. Bob Kane and Jerry Robinson did the iconic cover and interior art. Bill Finger story. Currently ranked as the #4 book on Overstreet's Top 100 Golden Age Comics list. CGC notes, "Restoration includes: color touch, pieces added, cleaned, reinforced." Overstreet 2019 GD 2.0 value = $55,300; VG 4.0 value = $110,600; FN 6.0 value = $165,900.
