    Detective Comics #38 (DC, 1940) CGC GD+ 2.5 Off-white pages. This copy presents very well indeed given the grade. It's very well-centered and has no front-cover staining or discoloration -- try finding another GD-type copy you can say that about! This unrestored copy should garner plenty of interest for that reason. This is one of the top 15 comics in the hobby, the first appearance of Robin, who was the first teen sidekick in comics. Overstreet 2009 GD 2.0 value = $4,100. CGC census 4/10: 1 in 2.5, 21 higher.
