    Description

    Detective Comics #2 (DC, 1937) CGC FN/VF 7.0 Off-white pages. This one has always been considered extremely tough to find, and only one other CGC blue label copy has been given a higher grade from CGC to date! Gerber rates it a "9" or "Very Rare" on the Photo-Journal Guide to Comics' Scarcity Index, and just to confirm that, we have seen many more copies of #27 than we have of issue #2. The hoodlum cover is by Creig Flessel. Superman co-creator Joe Shuster contributed interior art. CGC notes, "Small amount of dried glue on spine of cover." Overstreet 2020 FN 6.0 value = $19,380; VF 8.0 value = $42,000. CGC census 11/20: 2 in 7.0, 1 higher.
