    Description

    Detective Comics #8 (DC, 1937) CGC VG+ 4.5 Off-white pages. This is one of the first 250 or so comic books ever published, and it pre-dates the likes of Action #1 and Marvel Comics #1. This Gerber "7" or "scarce" comic has a classic cover by Creig Flessel that looks familiar because it was swiped for the oddball Atomic Comics about eight years later. Only collectors with limitless patience (and deep pockets) dare to collect pre-Batman Detectives, considering how rarely they come up for sale. Don't miss this sterling opportunity to invest in this early prize of the hobby! Overstreet 2015 VG 4.0 value = $3,500. CGC census 5/16: 2 in 4.5, 9 higher.
