    Detective Comics #233 (DC, 1956) CGC VF/NM 9.0 Off-white pages. The origin and first appearance of Batwoman has made this a hot book. This past year it's quietly entered Overstreet's Top 50 Silver Age Comics list -- so quietly, in fact, that Overstreet failed to mention it! It's been appreciating more than most on the coveted list, and we expect it to chart even higher next year. For now, this tied-for-highest CGC-certified grade copy might be a wise investment! Sheldon Moldoff provided the cover and story art for this issue of the title that originally gave us the first appearances of both Batman and Robin in 1939 and 1940 respectively. Overstreet 2020 VF/NM 9.0 value = $5,925; NM- 9.2 value = $8,500. CGC census 1/21: 2 in 9.0, none higher.
