    Superman #76 (DC, 1952) CGC VF/NM 9.0 Off-white pages. In this key issue, Batman and Superman learn each other's secret identities for the first time! The famous scene takes place in a cabin aboard ship which as fate (or writer Edmond Hamilton) would have it, is being shared by Clark Kent and Bruce Wayne. Flames light up the dark room just as the two are changing to Superman and Batman, and the rest is DC history, as the two would soon begin appearing in the same story in the pages of World's Finest. The story is also notable for being only the second time Curt Swan drew Superman -- he would go on to be one of the definitive artists for the character. Wayne Boring drew one of the issue's other Superman stories, and Win Mortimer provided the cover art. Overstreet 2005 VF/NM 9.0 value = $1,741; NM- 9.2 value = $2,350. CGC census 2/05: 3 in 9.0, none higher.
