    Batman #2 Billy Wright pedigree (DC, 1940) CGC VF+ 8.5 Off-white to white pages. One of Overstreet's Top 50 Golden Age books. Of course, issue #1 is now so expensive in high grade that it's out of the reach of most, so it might be time to secure #2 before this issue follows suit.
    Not only is this just the second appearance of both the Joker and Catwoman, it's the first appearance of the name "Catwoman," since this classic villainess was called "the Cat" in her first outing in #1. Bob Kane and Jerry Robinson are credited with the cover art.
    Since this meaty 64-pager had four Batman stories, kids would read it again and again, which is why most existing copies are scuffed, smudged, and spine-split. This is a superb opportunity to finally secure one in high grade. Overstreet 2011 VF 8.0 value = $12,500; VF/NM 9.0 value = $23,750. CGC census 2/12: 2 in 8.5, 2 higher.
