    Batman #1 (DC, 1940) CGC FN+ 6.5 Off-white pages. High-grade copies of this iconic issue haven't changed hands all that often in recent years, and that just adds to the allure, not to mention the demand for and value of the book. In April of this year a VG/FN 5.0 copy sold for an impressive $360,000! The issue is tied for the #4 spot on Overstreet's Top 100 Golden Age Comics with All-American Comics #16, moving up a spot from last year's Overstreet. Batman's own title followed a year after his first appearance in Detective Comics #27, and has the first appearances of the Joker and the Cat (aka Catwoman). Bob Kane and Jerry Robinson combined for the classic cover and art. Overstreet 2021 FN 6.0 value = $184,500; VF 8.0 value = $418,000. CGC census 9/21: 4 in 6.5, 18 higher.
