one of the most iconic cvrs of the Golden Age! 1st app. Joker; 1st app. Catwoman
Created by Bob Kane and Bill Finger as a dark, brooding combination of Superman and The Shadow, with a touch of The Bat Whispers tossed in, Batman quickly became a cultural phenomenon. Kane wiped the grime off Gotham and added a bright, youthful cohort to the Batman mythos, resulting in this triumphant first issue, an instant classic that sold out nearly overnight. 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 the immortal Joker, whose popularity may possibly eclipse that of his caped adversary. This issue marks the dawn of the sociopathic character, whose disturbing and haunting image influences and informs comic baddies to this day. Volumes have been written about the impact and importance of this historic issue, which sparked the Batman franchise to fire on all cylinders. However the importance to collectors and investors is plain: outside of Action Comics 1, you simply cannot find a more beloved, iconic, and universally sought-after Golden Age key than this one. 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. It gives us great pleasure to be able to offer this restored copy of a true treasure to our customers. This book is of great value and is always in demand, and as such, is a surefire investment, in any grade, restored or not, Batman 1 will continue to sit atop the comic book mountain for many, many years to come.
Colorful and remarkably clean, this copy is simply gorgeous, especially for its grade. No creases, tears, or foxing. For those who want a piece of canonical history without breaking the bank, this is an excellent piece for any collection.

classic Batman over castle cover by Bob Kane! 1st Batplane! (9/39)
Detective issues 27 and 38 may get all the attention, but true Bat-fanatics and Golden Age aficionados know that pre-Robin issues 28 through 37 contain some of the most moody and compelling Batman stories ever published, and some of the most dynamic covers of the pre-war era. This issue is probably the most famous and most difficult to obtain, and became the iconic image of the caped crusader for the Golden Age. Dark, brooding, and classic, this cinematic image more than any other captures the drama and crude power of early Batman, and easily demonstrates why so many Bat-collectors are nearly fetishistic about this brief but fertile period in the character's history. No serious DC Golden Age collection is complete without this masterpiece, which explains the feeding frenzy that ensues on the rare instances that copies make it to market. The Batman tale contained within this book's pages bears the distinction of introducing not only the Batgyro, precursor to the Batplane, but also the famous Batarang, a useful tool still brandished by the Caped Crusader to great effect in the modern day. Batman uses these gadgets in an attempt to rescue his fiancee, Julie Madison, from the Monk, a hooded and robed baddie, who employs hypnosis and gorillas in his nefarious plans!

origin and 1st app. Wonder Woman; one of the scarcest major Golden Age keys!
DC's Big Three were blessed with auspicious beginnings. All Star Comics 8 did for Wonder Woman what Action 1 and Detective 27 did for Superman and Batman. America's Guardian Angel was an instant hit who served as a graphic representative of the women's war effort during WWII, predating Rosie the Riveter by two years. Her origin was presented as the daughter of Hippolyta, who rescued fighter pilot Steve Trevor, whose pursuit of a Nazi spy ended with his crash landing on Paradise Island. Men are forbidden on the island, but, in divining his past, Hippolyta recognized that he was a hero worthy of sacrifice. The Amazons decided to aid the war effort and defeat the evil Nazis. Diana is ultimately chosen for the assignment.

Joe Shuster cover/art; 2nd Superman cover! rare in any grade (12/38)
Although Superman proved to be a smash hit from day one, DC didn't have any Man of Steel covers lined up for the character until six months after his debut, relegating him to interiors while wrapping the issues in the illustrative, punchy, pulp-style covers that had graced both New Adventure and More Fun up to that point. Action 7 is the second-ever appearance of Superman on a comic book cover. Joe Shuster's perfectly understated style sets the mood for the character's early appearances, his bold strength and boisterous energy perfectly match the simplified lines and stark, evocative landscape that work in perfect unity with Siegel's punchy dialogue and rapid-fire plotting, these elements all come together to give the series an unmatched kinetic energy.

Kirby cvr; Ditko art; origin & 1st app. Spider-Man; 1st Uncle Ben & Aunt May
Dallas Stephens / Milehigh.com
This is the Silver Age equivalent of Action Comics 1: an historic, game-changing key issue that acts as a pivot point from what came before, and what came after. The creation of Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, this radical new concept featured a passive, neurotic, everyman hero; an unusually emotionally charged origin story touching on issues of mortality and family tragedy; a worldview grounded solidly in a real, recognizable universe obviously our own; and open-ended storytelling that demanded and rewarded close reading and regular readership. This milestone comic has also proven to be the success story of comics investment, growing rapidly and unstoppably in value and becoming one of the few completely bulletproof investments in recent times. This is THE Silver Age comic.

Coverless; 1st wrap missing, affects story; large tear on 2nd pg; incomplete
1st Superman by Siegel and Shuster; possibly the most famous and most important comic ever published!
The most important comic book in the history of comic books. This is the introduction of the archetype of all other heroes to come. Superman transcends comic books and pop culture. He is an icon of Truth, Justice and The American Way! Created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, Superman is quite possibly the most recognizable fictional character in the world. The creation of two struggling sci-fi fans from the Rust Belt, the Man of Steel became an instant icon to depression-era readers, and easily transformed into an icon of American spirit and spunk during the brutal days of WWII. Since then, he has lasted as both a beloved character and a symbol of modern hope and vigor, making this first appearance not just a piece of comics' history, but of American history as well.
Rarely do any parts from Action Comics #1 surface. It's even rarer to see them housed in CGC Universal blue slabs. With a 0.5 copy recently selling for $110,000, demand has never been stronger for the "Holy Grail" of comic book collecting. We are proud to offer three pieces in this Auction: a coverless copy missing the first wrap and two solo Superman pages (page 2 and page 3). In November of 2011, we sold a rougher example of page 3 for $4,200. With the entry-cost for 0.5 examples now reaching six-figures, this is an affordable opportunity to acquire a true piece of history.

Kirby & Simon cvr/art; origin & 1st app. Captain America, Bucky, & Red Skull; classic Hitler cvr!
We've said it before, but it bears repeating that the popularity of characters such as Captain America and the willingness of comic writers and artists to confront the Axis threat went a long way toward mobilizing a heretofore isolationist American populace in the long, dark days of the late 30s and early 40s. While many other art forms desperately avoided or ignored the ugly truth of Europe's rapid slide into fascism and Nazism in an obvious attempt to protect their own financial interests overseas, the almost entirely US-based comics business, staffed and developed largely by fugitives from those same wartime horrors, boldly waved the flag of freedom, most notably in this instant classic. Readers immediately fell in love with this gutsy, gleefully aggressive new hero, who wore his allegiance on his sleeve (well, his forehead, at any rate) and made his intent powerfully clear by taking aim directly at the mustachioed puss of the Fuhrer himself. In these pre-Pearl Harbor days, such an image was simply incendiary, and copies flew off shelves almost immediately, leading to a nearly 75 year run as the preeminent symbol of American heroism.

The premieres of the Captain America and Avengers movies have catapulted Captain America's popularity into the stratosphere. His star is on the rise. The demand for Captain America Comics 1 has grown exponentially over the last two years. Records are constantly being set and broken. With two more Cap and Avengers movies scheduled the demand will grow and grow.

Hands down one of the most important comic books of all time, this restored copy is in an amazing 9.4 condition and has some fantastic eye appeal! Restored comics no longer have the stigma they had in the past as high grade copies of golden age keys are becoming rarer and rarer. Getting a copy in any condition is proving to be more difficult every day. Gorgeous red, white and blue jumps off the page as Cap strikes the first ever punch on Hitler in pop culture history. Nice off-white/white pages add to the appeal!

Kirby cover/art; Ditko art; origin and 1st app. Thor
Melding elements of Norse mythology with the by-now-standard superhero tropes of the funny pages, Stan Lee followed up his Jekyll & Hyde-styled Hulk with this cosmic, high-camp treasure. The book was initially scripted by Stan's brother Larry (to give the overworked and exhausted Lee some breathing room), and penciled with surprising grace and elegance by Jack Kirby. Another instant favorite, the comic confirmed Lee's Midas touch in the early 1960s as the comic soon became the bedrock for Marvel's more theatrical and grandiose styling. Lee and Kirby stretched mythological legend and armchair philosophy into an epic of a series that slotted in nicely on college campuses already drenched in tweed, deep thoughts, and the occasional cloud of illicit smoke. In recent years, the character has enjoyed yet another renaissance thanks to Marvel's savvy cinematic exploitation, and this debut appearance, already extremely rare thanks to an unusually low print run, has become in even greater demand as a result.

Kirby cvr/art; origin & 1st app. Fantastic Four; 1st Mole Man; the Marvel Age begins here!
Inspired by DC's top-selling smorgasbord of heroes, the Justice League of America, Stan Lee, and Jack Kirby decided to go one better when tasked with creating a copycat title for Marvel. Instead of a mashup of existing heroes, Lee and Kirby struck upon the novel concept of creating a super-family, allowing young readers to instantly identify with the day-to-day squabbles and growing pains of the protagonists while still enjoying liberal doses of heroism and derring-do. This dynamic and historic first issue hit the ground running with an action-packed cover and one of the most thrilling and engrossing origin stories of the era.

1st app. of Dr. Death, 2nd Batman cover
The dark castle, the night gloom, the dark cape, the evil scientist -- the influence of pre-code horror cinema on Bob Kane's nocturnal creation is nowhere more evident than on this classic and painfully rare cover, one of the pre-Robin Detective issues over which Bat-collectors drool. You haven't really experienced the crude power of these early Bat-books until you've seen them in their original pulpy glory, and this second-ever cover appearance by the Batman is still hugely powerful to this day. The story therein pits the Caped Crusader against Dr. Karl Hellfern, aka Doctor Death, who, like all great villains, intends to take over the world, but first, must rid himself of that meddling Batman, which leads to an action-packed tale of mayhem. It's well documented that once Batman received his own title the stories became quite a bit more tame than the ones depicted in early Detective Comics. This issue is no exception as Batman painfully takes a bullet to the shoulder in this tale. How's that for gritty?


Overstreet Guide 2015 GD (2.0) value = $9,500.

Detective Comics No. 29 CGC 1.5 After DC realized they missed the opportunity to sell a lot more comics by not putting Batman on the cover of Detective No. 28, they certainly make up for it on issue 29. This battle worn copy boast numerous flaws, but said flaws wonderfully leave the central image intact. The colors are lush and bright and this comic is still has a devastating allure. Finding a first year Batman book in any grade is the hard part, now all you have to do is in the bid.

the Ultimate DC S.A. Key; origin and 1st app. Flash, 1st app. Iris West
It is widely believed that Showcase 4 didn't just introduce the modern version of the Flash -- the issue may have saved the entire comic book industry from impending collapse. Before Julius Schwartz re-designed the Fastest Man Alive, superheroes were an afterthought in post-war comic books. Now, 58 years later, any comics not concerning superheroes are considered as something of an afterthought. This particular book was important and resonated on many levels.The Flash is now enjoying renewed popularity with a weekly television show on the CW network, bringing forth another character from print to film and increasing demand on his first appearance. What price can you put on this book? A hero book which is hero unto itself, acting as the savior for an entire wing of international pop culture. Who knows what may have become of comics if it were not for this special piece of inspiration. This affordable copy can now belong to a collector who has been longing to own this classic of the Silver Age. The central image is vibrant, the colors strong, and the historical importance unparalleled. Hurry up and take a chance before it speeds away.

Bob Montana cvr/art; 1st app. Mrs. Andrews
Some elements of American pop culture transcend time or place and become iconic, as though they were always there. Archie Andrews, the quintessential American teen, and his friends, Jughead, Reggie, and especially Betty and Veronica, have spent over seven decades portraying the ups and downs of teenage life. Their stories prove as durable and identifiable for audiences today as the day they first appeared on newsstands.

Archie quickly took over the hero anthology Pep Comics shortly after his first appearance and was promptly given his own title, thereby sealing his status as the top teen comedy hero. The success of the comic took MLJ Publishing from a scrappy latecomer to a major powerhouse in the comics market. Despite an enormous print run, Archie Comics 1 has survived in astonishingly low numbers and top tier Archie collectors are notoriously known as the "black holes" of the collecting community, as once they're in a collection, they're never to be seen again. Archie Comics 1 is likely the single most difficult major Golden Age key to obtain after Pep Comics 22, Archie's first appearance. One of the most demanded and revered of comic book keys, this book never fails to elicit excitement when copies surface and regularly breaks records.

one of the most iconic cvrs of the Golden Age! 1st app. Joker; 1st app. Catwoman
Created by Bob Kane and Bill Finger as a dark, brooding combination of Superman and The Shadow, with a touch of The Bat Whispers tossed in, Batman quickly became a cultural phenomenon. Kane wiped the grime off Gotham and added a bright, youthful cohort to the Batman mythos, resulting in this triumphant first issue, an instant classic that sold out nearly overnight. 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 the immortal Joker, whose popularity may possibly eclipse that of his caped adversary. This issue marks the dawn of the sociopathic character, whose disturbing and haunting image influences and informs comic baddies to this day. Volumes have been written about the impact and importance of this historic issue, which sparked the Batman franchise to fire on all cylinders. However the importance to collectors and investors is plain: outside of Action Comics 1, you simply cannot find a more beloved, iconic, and universally sought-after Golden Age key than this one. 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. It gives us great pleasure to be able to offer this restored copy of a true treasure to our customers. This book is of great value and is always in demand, and as such, is a surefire investment, in any grade, restored or not, Batman 1 will continue to sit atop the comic book mountain for many, many years to come.
A little restorationg goes a long way with this copy. The cover's striking vibrancy is entrancing and the near perfect allignment is a boon for the perfectionists among us that can't help but be unsettled by overlaps in printing. For any collector, this is truly a stunning piece.

Ditko cvr/art; origin retold; 1st Chameleon; 1st J. Jonah Jameson; Fantastic Four cover
Where previous heroes had their origin stories based in spectacular events, dramatic twists, and high tragedy, Stan Lee and Steve Ditko firmly planted their flagship character's feet in the hard ground of daily life in the big city. Shy, insecure, lower-class teen, Peter Parker, drawn to scrawny imperfection by Ditko, transforms into a freakish, wise-cracking daredevil, tortured by guilt over the loss of his father figure, all while scrambling to make a quick buck from his sudden brush with semi-greatness. Spider-Man's first appearance in Amazing Fantasy 15 was like nothing anyone had seen before and was an instant success, leading to a hurriedly prepared solo debut issue. Note the use of the Fantastic Four on the cover as insurance, as their group exploits were Marvel's one real box-office draw at the time, and the hungry, ambitious Lee was taking no chances. One of the most important comics of the Silver Age, and the book that proved the Marvel Age of comics was no fluke.

1st app. & origin Daredevil by Everett; Kirby cvr
Pennsylvania Dutch Copy
You can tell from the Spider-Man plug on the cover that Marvel had, by the time of this book's release, become known as a hero machine by pumping out high-gloss, high-energy heroes and heroines, which sold like hotcakes. In this case, the House of Ideas picked up a Biro hero name, which had been left to linger, dusted it off and added the enticing gimmick of making their Daredevil a blind lawyer, adding both modern intrigue and a great hook. It would take a while for the character to fully hit its stride, but the dynamic Kirby cover and ravishing Everett interiors attracted readers and established Daredevil as a unique and mature alternative to cosmic adventuring and teenage angst.

Kirby cover/art; origin and 1st app. Hulk, Rick Jones, Betty Ross, & General Ross; one of the top five Marvel keys!!
Inspired by Jekyll & Hyde and the Jewish myth of the Golem, Stan Lee and Jack Kirby kept their hot streak running with the big and brutal Hulk. This instantly classic issue preys on Cold War fears of nuclear annihilation and the average American boy's body discomfort and confusion to create one of the most haunting and affecting of hero origins. Initially colored grey in his premier appearance, the lead character was quickly reworked into a big green beast when the primitive four-color printing process mangled the grey color scheme throughout the book, altering the goliath's hue from page to page. The famous cover image still resonates with fans to this day, be it green or grey.

Presented in five parts, this origin story really packs a mean, green punch! After Dr. Bruce Banner becomes exposed to his own invention, the gamma bomb, he undergoes his first transformation into the Hulk. What ensues is a tale of Cold War intrigue involving the interplay between a duo of mutated beings, which packs enough poignancy and torment to make Frankenstein's Monster take notice. This tale struck a chord with readers of the period and The Hulk quickly secured his place at the top of Marvel's popularity pyramid.


Overstreet Guide 2015 VG/F (5.0) value = $8,750

Increible Hulk #1 is one of those comics that for some reason is terribly hard to find in any condition. Bruce Banner/the Hulk, Betty Ross and others made their first appearance here in a series that initially lasted only 6 issues before being cancelled. The Hulk was brought back in the Avengers and Tales To Astonish shortly afterwards but didn't get his own title until a few years later.This copy coming in at 5.0 condition, sports cream to off-white pages and shows minimal wear on the cover with striking navy blues, yellows and reds. Investing now will certainly pay dividends in the future so bid often and don't let it get away!

Kirby cvr; Ditko art; origin & 1st app. Spider-Man; 1st Uncle Ben & Aunt May
Joe Giganti Collection
This is the Silver Age equivalent of Action Comics 1: an historic, game-changing key issue that acts as a pivot point from what came before, and what came after. The creation of Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, this radical new concept featured a passive, neurotic, everyman hero; an unusually emotionally charged origin story touching on issues of mortality and family tragedy; a worldview grounded solidly in a real, recognizable universe obviously our own; and open-ended storytelling that demanded and rewarded close reading and regular readership. This milestone comic has also proven to be the success story of comics investment, growing rapidly and unstoppably in value and becoming one of the few completely bulletproof investments in recent times. This is THE Silver Age comic.


Not very colorful when first pressed, the cover still retains strong browns and reds along with nice Off White/White pages. It shows light, moderate wear with only a few color breaks at the spine and just a little rounding of the corners. Mid-grade copies like this one are becoming increasingly more difficult to acquire as they continually go up in value every year. Don't miss out on this very attractive copy.

Kirby cover; Ditko art; origin & 1st app. Iron Man (Tony Stark)
Realizing the growing Marvel audience was composed primarily of hip, and largely left-leaning high-school students and collegians, Stan Lee decided to challenge himself to create a hero who would be the embodiment of everything the counterculture was railing against, and still elicit sympathy from readers. Thus, Tony Stark was born, an older, hard drinking, playboy millionaire. Iron Man quickly became a cult favorite whose popularity has only grown over the years.

The origin story of Iron Man is one deeply rooted in the Vietnam War era, Tony Stark, a weapons designer, is brought in to help the U.S. government in their efforts to combat the Vietcong, whose guerilla tactics make the American military approach of bigger and badder seem obsolete in the steamy jungles of Southeast Asia. While conducting a test, Stark is fatally injured by a booby trap, and during his captivity he constructs a suit of armor that slows the approach of a piece of shrapnel towards his heart, and contains an array of gadgets and firepower. Voila, Iron Man is born, and he is ready to do battle with the forces of Communism and other evils around the globe.

Kirby cvr/art; 1st app. Ant-Man! (appearing in upcoming Avengers sequels)
This is the great "hidden" success story of Marvel keys -- at nearly every convention we've attended in the past ten years, this book has sold quickly, it ends up on pretty much every Marvel want list we get. Even before Marvel's recent reinvention of the character this was the secret key, rarer than most, and seemingly in huge, if subtle demand. Not anymore -- this book has now exploded in demand and value, thanks both to its scarcity and the sudden resurgence of interest in the character (Marvel greenlighting an Ant-Man movie franchise certainly helps). The cover of this classic book hearkens back to the sci-fi monster mashes of the 1950s that were popping up like weeds all over the TV dial at the time of this issue's publication. It's likely that Lee and Kirby were trying to cash in on the popularity of giant-bug movies among their adolescent readership, but also retaining the flexibility to sneak the anthology title slowly into the superhero realm that would prove to be Marvel's bread and butter before too long. The market price has skyrocketed by approximately 12% in the past year alone.

Kirby cvr/art; origin and 1st app. X-Men; 1st app. Magneto
As Stan Lee explained on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson, his original title for this comic was "The Mutants" but the editor in chief at the time didn't like the sound of it. Stan, in a stroke of genius, decided to name the team after its founder Professor X, and thus was born the X-Men. A band of outcasts hated and feared by the human world this team book was almost canceled. It was reborn with a cast of new characters in the 70s which made them a household name and a perennial favorite ever since. Everybody can relate to what it is like being on the outside looking in at one point or another in their lives and that is what draws us to the X-Men. With a myriad number of comic-related titles, over five movies made and many more to come the popularity of this title will only increase over time.

1st Silver Age Flash in his own title; origin and 1st app. Mirror Master
Having proved the viability of reviving Golden Age heroes with several top-selling Showcase appearances, DC editor Julius Schwartz and creative team Carmine Infantino and John Broome dusted off the original Flash Comics title and streamlined it for the Atomic Age. It's amazing to think, in comparison with the modern day penchant for rebooting titles, on what seems to be a weekly basis, that this re-introduction was a truly risky venture in the painfully-crunched Silver Age comic market. It's unsurprising, then, that DC carefully attached this shiny new Flash to the history of the original to reassure buyers and newsstand owners alike that this was a proven property. It turns out they need not have worried, as this issue cemented the hero resurgence and a flood of new cape books soon washed over the market.

H.G. Peter cover/art; 2nd Wonder Woman, 1st cover; origin & 1st app. Wildcat, Mr. Terrific and the Gay Ghost
It's not the first appearance of Wonder Woman, but it's the most famous WW issue there is, and it's her first cover appearance as well -- an undeniably big moment in comics history, as William Moulton Marston's revolutionary and cagily subversive heroine explodes onto the Golden Age comics scene, thereby officially establishing the "trinity" of DC's hero stable, and giving a role model and avatar for millions of little girls and women all over the world. This classic cover debuts H.G. Peter's trademark style, which combines the crude grace of ancient Greek artists with the flowering majesty of storybook illustration. This strip looked and felt like nothing else before or since, and is a milestone in comics history.

Pg. 2; Tony Moore pencils, inks and signed; 11" x 17"
Easily the most influential and important of modern comics, Robert Kirkman's Walking Dead has inspired not only a virtual horde of tie-in entertainment, from TV to gaming to practically everything else, but has also inspired an entire generation of comics artists and writers moved by the series' literate storytelling, raw emotionalism, and careful pacing. Just as the early issues of the series command top prices, thanks to their low print runs, original art from the series is eagerly sought by serious collectors. Most notable are the early issues by Tony Moore, as his early departure from the series means that very little work from the character's original delineator is available to buyers. The image of Rick still donning his sherriff's hat invokes nostalgia from the die-hard fans of the series and this super early art is poised to fetch a staggering price, especially thanks to the scarcity of Moore's work for the series. NOTE: Piece conserved by Aitchison & Watters with rice paper.
