DETECTIVE COMICS #32
Publisher:
DC
Grade:
CGC F/VF: 7.0
Detective Comics 32 boasts one of the earliest appearances of the Batman. Featuring the infamous panels in which the legendarily-anti-gun Caped Crusader brandishes a firearm for the first time, and is graced with an example of Fred Guardineer's most dramatic and best-remembered covers. This is also the first time a costumed hero uses a gun in comics.

The Caped Crusader sixth appearance lurks behind this wonderfully dramatic cover by Fred Guardineer. Collector's fully understand how difficult these early pre-1940 issues of Detective Comics truly are. Offered here is a wonderful CGC 7.0 copy of a very rare and desirable piece of Batman history.

Overstreet 2011 F/VF 7.0 value = $4,733. CGC census 1 in 7.0, 2nd highest graded.
