    Description

    Detective Comics #18 (DC, 1938) CGC Apparent VG 4.0 Slight (A) Off-white to white pages. Stolen!
    This lot has been reported stolen. If you have any information regarding the whereabouts, please email bids@HA.com


    This might be Creig Flessel's best cover ever, as well as the best of the pre-Batman Detective covers. And like all of those 26 books, this one is seldom offered for sale. This moody scene features the real Fu Manchu, unlike #1 which was not the real villain but a similar character. A classic! CGC notes, "Restoration includes: spine split sealed to cover." Overstreet 2009 GD 2.0 value = $960; VG 4.0 value = $1,920.

    View the certification for CGC Certification ID 800371002 and purchase grader's notes if available.
