    Description

    Detective Comics #29 (DC, 1939) CGC VG/FN 5.0 Off-white to white pages. Batman appeared on a comic book cover for only the second time here, with the impressive visuals courtesy of Bob Kane. And while the Caped Crusader had faced forgettable foes up to this point, he met his first "name" villain here in the person of Dr. Death. While Batman had earned top billing, he hadn't yet taken over the whole comic -- also appearing in this issue were the Crimson Avenger (with Jim Chambers art), Speed Saunders (with Fred Guardineer art), and Slam Bradley (in a story written by Jerry Siegel and drawn by Joe Shuster). Only three unrestored copies of this book have been certified with higher grades by CGC to date. CGC notes, "small amount of dried glue on spine of cover." Note that a small plastic stabilizing peg is loose inside the CGC holder, not affecting the integrity of the holder or the comic itself. Overstreet 2004 VG 4.0 value = $5,636; FN 6.0 value = $8,445. CGC census 12/04: 1 in 5.0, 3 higher. From the Northern Lights Collection.
