    Detective Comics #35 (DC, 1940) CGC VG- 3.5 Off-white to white pages. Just forget about the grade for a moment and look at our high-resolution scans of this comic. You'll see it presents extremely well in its CGC holder, and while there is some discernable wear, this is certainly a "bragging rights" comic. The issue is one of Overstreet's Top 100 Golden Age Comics, and any copy that's certified as unrestored is hard to come by. This issue's classic cover marked the beginning of Batman's run as the permanent cover star of the title, a streak that is still going! The book is also famous for its splash panel, which has Batman holding a smoking gun -- now that's a Dark Knight! Every copy we have offered recently from Poor on up has outpaced the Overstreet value, and we expect that trend to continue here. Overstreet 2015 VG 4.0 value = $14,000. CGC census 5/16: 3 in 3.5, 13 higher.
