one of the most iconic covers of the Golden Age! 1st app. Joker; 1st app. Catwoman (Spring 1940)
CGC VG: 4.0
Bob Kane and Batman co-creator Bill Finger wiped the grime off of Gotham and added a bright, youthful cohort to the Batman mythos. One of the most-famous comics of the Golden Age, featuring one of the most-iconic covers, Batman 1 is the perfect cornerstone for any new Golden Age collector; an accessible, desirable comic that only increases in value and popularity year after year. Featuring not only the first appearance of the infamous and remarkably influential Catwoman, but also of the immortal Joker. This issue marks the dawn of the sociopathic character, whose disturbing and haunting image influences and informs comic baddies to this day. Batman 1 is consistently amongst the top-ten-most-desirable comics in the world, always demanding impressive prices and always a super-hot item in our auctions. As knowledgeable collectors are aware, top-tier keys are becoming more and more difficult to find on the market, as owners know well enough to hold on to these trophies and lock them away for years or sometimes generations.

Bright yellows and fiery reds make all the difference on copies of Batman 1 -- this slightly professionally restored copy is graced with both, making this an attractive option for Golden Age collectors looking for a great buy for their investment dollar. This book has been getting tougher and tougher to come by as copies get snapped into collections and locked away from the market, so anyone looking to get into this classic book should buy now, or regret it later.
