    Detective Comics #33, 37, and 51 Bound Volume (DC, 1939-41). Included here are gorgeous copies of issues #33, 37, and 51 that have been trimmed and bound into a softcover volume. Of course, the main draw here is #33, an important issue featuring the first time Batman's origin was told -- as well as a classic cover featuring a rare instance of the Dark Knight sporting a firearm. Also of note: Issue #37 features Batman's last solo adventure prior to the debut of Robin one month later in Detective Comics #38. Additional stories feature Speed Saunders, the Crimson Avenger, and Slam Bradley. Bob Kane covers and art. The comics are in very nice condition with bright, glossy covers, supple pages, mild wear, and some tanning to the edges and cover interiors. Overstreet VG 4.0 value for group = $35,768.
