    Detective Comics #29 (DC, 1939) CGC GD 2.0 Off-white pages. Just the second cover appearance of Batman, and his third appearance overall, this is one of the 20 most valuable comic book issues according to Overstreet. Yes, it's a Good copy but 99.9% of Batman fans have no copy. Unrestored copies we have auctioned previously have averaged double Guide. Upon reflection, Bob Kane's cover is probably a better representation of the character than the broad-daylight cover of #27 -- this is the grim character as we know him, doing his work by the full moon. Overstreet 2009 GD 2.0 value = $3,385. CGC census 4/09: 1 in 2.0, 12 higher.
