2nd app. Joker, 2nd app. Catwoman; classic Joker splash page
Bob Kane File
By the second issue of Batman the transformation of the character and franchise from dark, brooding, mystery of the night to cheerful (if bizarre) puncher of bad persons was complete. Even the backgrounds of these covers mark a decisive change from the pre-Robin era: from dense, detailed settings full of menace to bright, eye-catching color washes meant to pry coins from the pockets of precocious boys. Despite the flattening of the character's idiosyncrasies, there was also no denying the inventiveness and joy of these classic-era tales, with Kane's ghost artists -fine craftsmen all- filling pages and pages with deliriously imaginative locales, perfectly craggy thug faces, and no end of action and mayhem.

Bob Kane/Jerry Robinson cvr/art; 3rd app of Catwoman (1st in costume)
Bob Kane File
Early Batman comics are notoriously difficult to procure and issue 3 has one of the best covers of the first ten issues of the series. This one looks like it may have been the basis for the animated intro of the iconic Adam West TV series. You can almost hear the theme song as you look at it! It just so happens to be the first appearance of Catwoman in full costume and the first appearance of the Puppet Master.

2nd app. of Batman; Kane, Shuster, Guardineer art
Bob Kane File
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.

Guardineer cvr; 2nd Doctor Death
Bob Kane File
Detective Comics 30 contains one of the earliest appearances of the Caped Crusader, in a tale which finds him battling the fiendish Doctor Death whom he first encountered in the previous issue and had assumed was dead. The disturbing, violent, pre-code cover is a genuinely striking piece of Golden Age art, and one which we appreciatively get to admire daily on our gallery wall here in our New York City offices. As far as early Bat-books go, this one has a great story, a memorable cover from the days before Batman would become the sole focus of the book.

Batman uses gun for the 1st time
Bob Kane File
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.

Bob Kane/Jerry Robinson cvr/art; origin and 1st app. Clayface; 1st Joker cover!
Bob Kane File
Yes, that's him. His face may have been colored pink by some unknown and probably harried staff artist, but this is the first cover appearance of the Joker, the most-collected cover character in comics fandom. Couple this with the first-ever appearance of Clayface, one of the Batman's most memorable villains, and this is a perfect Bat-collectible.
