    Detective Comics #62 (DC, 1942). An absolutely classic Joker cover by Jerry Robinson leads off this terrific issue with interior work by Bob Kane, Robinson, and George Roussos. This is either the first or the second Joker cover (depending on which historian you talk to), but either way it's stunning, and far superior to the cover to Detective #40. An excellent copy whose colors are still bright and fresh, with a perfect cut and a crisp appearance. A very desirable copy of this landmark book. CGC FN/VF 7.0 Off-white to white pages. Overstreet 2001 FN 6.0 value = $695; NM 9.4 value = $2,200.
