    Detective Comics #36 Davis Crippen ("D" Copy) pedigree (DC, 1940) CGC VG+ 4.5 Off-white pages. When you see a copy of this issue it always seems to have restoration, so it's refreshing to see this Universal grade (though no surprise in this case given the source of this original-owner book)! This early Batman appearance also has the origin and first appearance of Doctor Hugo Strange, whom Overstreet calls Batman's first major villain. Followers of Bat-firsts will be interested to note that in the story itself, Batman dons his distinctive finned gloves for the first time. Overstreet 2006 VG 4.0 value = $1,576. CGC census 6/06: 1 in 4.5, 5 higher. From the Crippen Collection.
