This might be the most undervalued non-key in the Overstreet Guide. Perhaps the cover led collectors astray, not realizing its importance as the second-ever appearance of the Batman. Within, though, Kane and Finger were doggedly building the noirish mythology of their shadowy new hero, easily outshining the Slam Bradley and Fu Manchu features shoring up the rest of the book. By the time this issue roared off stands and into adolescent back pockets, DC was no longer uncertain about the potential of their new creation.

This book rarely, if ever, crosses our path, and early Batman collectors will salivate at the chance to add this tough issue to their collection.
