1st app. 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?

Guardineer cvr; 2nd Doctor Death
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.

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!

Detective Comics 36 marks the first appearance of Hugo Strange -- Batman's first arch-enemy, and modern collectors will know him as the primary antagonist of the critically acclaimed video game hit Batman: Arkham City. Rarely are copies of this pre-Robin Detective issue made available for sale, and the fact that there are only thirty blue-label copies in existence doesn't make matters any easier.

Bob Kane cvr/art; Joe Shuster, Fred Guardineer art, last Batman solo issue
This comic would be the last time the Batman would fight crime as a solo act in Detective Comics as he was to be accompanied by his trusty sidekick, Robin, in an effort to appeal to readers of a younger demographic. While this is not the last pulpy, moody, dark Detective cover, it represents a shift in the tone and demeanor of the early, dangerous, lone-wolf vigilante, which is only one reason Batmaniacs should be chomping at the bit to get their hands on this copy.
