    Description

    Detective Comics #35 (DC, 1940) CGC GD/VG 3.0 Cream to off-white pages. It's easy to see why this early Batman cover (the fifth to be exact) has fueled the value increase of the issue. It's been racing up Overstreet's Top 100 Golden Age Books list, advancing 13 places in the past 3 years, and 67 places over the last 11 years since it occupied the 100th spot! Classic hypodermic needle cover and splash page by co-creator Bob Kane and stories by Bill Finger (the other co-creator) and Jerry Siegel. We've just offered the issue five other times over the past two years, and only two of those were CGC Universal copies, so we expect keen interest in this offering. CGC notes, "Moderate amount of tape on interior cover." However, the tape is archival quality and expertly applied. Overstreet 2012 GD 2.0 value = $3,267; VG 4.0 value = $6,534. CGC census 2/13: 3 in 3.0, 12 higher.
