    Description

    Detective Comics #31 (DC, 1939) CGC VG 4.0 Cream to off-white pages. Bob Kane and Jerry Robinson create a classic cover for this early Golden Age milestone, merely four months after the Dark Knight's first comic book appearance. This issue occasioned a plethora of "firsts" in its own right, with the first Batplane, the first Batarang, the first Monk, and the first Julie Madison, Batman's first love interest. Only two copies of this issue have earned a grade as high as Fine from CGC at this point, and none better than Very Fine, making this mid-grade all the more attractive. Overstreet 2002 GD 2.0 value = $2,643; FN 6.0 value = $7,929.
