    Detective Comics #22 (DC, 1938) CGC FN- 5.5 Off-white to white pages. This is just the second superhero cover ever on a comic book, following only Action #1 and tied with Action #7 for the honor. It's also only the second unrestored copy that we've ever offered. The mystery man on the cover is the Crimson Avenger, making his only cover appearance in the title (though a few hardy dissenters aver that the masked fellow on #34 is this character). Jim Chambers is the cover artist. Overstreet 2010 FN 6.0 value = $2,160. CGC census 10/10: 2 in 5.5, 3 higher.
