one of the most iconic covers of the Golden Age! 1st app. Joker; 1st app. Catwoman (Spring 1940)
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.
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 book has undergone a minor amount of restoration, and it looks fantastic, a strong chromatic motif coupled with insane desirability and historic significance is sure to please Bat-fans of all Bat-stripes.

2nd app. Joker, 2nd app. Catwoman; classic Joker splash page
Atlantic City Copy
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)
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.

Bob Kane/Jerry Robinson cvr/art; 1st app. Clock Maker
The Batman cover formula is well in place by this issue: feature the Dynamic Duo in cheerful, barrel chested action poses with striking, often solid color backgrounds, slap that enormous logo on the top, and watch kids fight over the result. The brash action and pulpy adventure of the early Bat issues is plainly evident in this classic image. By this time, the formula had been well enough established that scribes Gardner Fox and Bill Finger, largely responsible for growing the Batman rogues' gallery through the Golden Age, were coming up with more and more ridiculous ideas for themed villains, such as this issue's Clock Maker. This bizarre baddie, obsessed with the loss of time and the intricacy of clockmaking, neatly fits into the series' themes of loss and mortality, even if the stories themselves were drifting away from pulp melodrama into pure action. There are still plenty of dark, moody moments in this fascinating attempt to create a new Joker/Luthor/etc.

Fred Ray/Jerry Robinson infinity cvr; Joker app.
Infinity cover collectors are entranced by the fourth-wall-breaking surrealism of this niche genre, with a comic's central characters enjoying their own exploits in full view of the reader -- this mindbending trick has led to some of the most classic covers in comics history, and this sterling Fred Ray entry is a fine example. Gregarious and solid, early Batman and Robin issues were always graced with boyish covers with sparkling charm.

Joker covers always bring a premium at auction and this cover is a perfect example why. With Batman as the King, Robin as the Jack and the Joker as, who else, the Joker, Fred Ray's fabulous cover was an instant classic. As was the style of the day, someone usually got punched in the jaw and nothings better than Joker getting a good socking from Batman! The Penguin makes a fowl appearance as well.

This book's cover illustration, by co-creator Bob Kane, bears a classic WWII image of the Dynamic Duo parachuting into action, no doubt to do their patriotic duty for the boys overseas. The interior of the book contains three thrilling tales: "The Batman Plays a Lone Hand", in which Batman, surprisingly, fires Robin in order to go solo; "Comedy of Tears", a Joker story which includes "real world" cameos by Joe DiMaggio and Superman creator Jerry Seigel; and "The Story of the Seventeen Stones", which pits the Bat against Rocky Grimes, who does indeed employ seventeen forms of stone in the executions of his crimes.
