    Batman #1 (DC, 1940) CGC VF- 7.5 Off-white pages. Overstreet currently ranks just five other comic books higher on its list of the Top Golden Age Books. Not long after Batman was introduced in Detective Comics in 1939, it was apparent that one comic book title was not enough to showcase the adventures of the superhero and his Boy Wonder sidekick, Robin. Like his pal Superman, Batman would star in dozens of titles over the next 65 years, maintaining his tremendous popularity to this very day. Co-creator Bob Kane fashioned the cover and did the interior art for this premiere issue, which featured the origin of Batman and the first appearances of the Joker and the Cat (later Catwoman). One of the crown jewels of our auction! Overstreet 2005 VF 8.0 value = $50,000. CGC census 5/05: 2 in 7.5, 5 higher.
