    Description

    Detective Comics #8 (DC, 1937) CGC VF 8.0 Off-white pages. This book is one of the first 250 or so comics ever published, and pre-dates Action Comics #1 by eight months. The classic cover art for this issue is credited to Creig Flessel and if it looks familiar, it's probably because it was appropriated (swiped) for the cover to the unique Atomic Comics some eight years later. This Detective issue has a Gerber scarcity rating of 7. Overstreet 2016 VF 8.0 value = $9,625. CGC census 5/17: 2 in 8.0, 1 higher.
