    Detective Comics #35 (DC, 1940) CGC VG+ 4.5 Off-white pages. Blue-label copies are tough to come by of this book which is seldom found in unrestored condition. In fact, we've offered just two higher-graded blue label copies in our history. Classic Batman hypodermic needle cover. The blindingly bright cover inks on this copy will impress even the most discerning collector. The interior pages are also supple and nice. As of this writing the book is #21 on Overstreet's list of the most valuable Golden Age books. Consecutive Batman covers begin with this key issue, and a classic Batman splash page is a highlight of the book. Bob Kane did the famous cover, and interior art is by Kane and Fred Guardineer. Bill Finger and Jerry Siegel stories. CGC notes, "Tape on cover." There is a very small piece of tape at the bottom of the spine. A copy that most certainly presents better than the grade would indicate, you need to see this copy up close and personal! Overstreet 2017 VG 4.0 value = $28,000. CGC census 7/17: 3 in 4.5, 7 higher.
