RARE! 1st Slam Bradley/Spy by Siegel & Shuster
Having practically started the comic book market singlehandedly with the historic New Fun in 1935, Major Malcolm Wheeler-Nicholson partnered with Harry Donenfeld in 1937 to again make history with Detective Comics #1, which launched their new publishing venture as well as kick-started the careers of Superman creators, Siegel and Shuster. The crude Yellow Peril cover helped sell the book to the vital pulp market and hinted at the mysterious yarns spun within. Detective Comics #1 was the beginning of a new beast in print media. Printed more than a year before Action Comics #1, and two ahead of Detective #27, this comic set the stage for a new cast of heroes poised to literarily take on the growing threat of Nazism.

1st app Batman by Bob Kane; one of the top three most important comics ever published!
After DC Comics' huge success with Superman, editors were looking for another superhero to cash in on, and young creators Bob Kane and Bill Finger came up with The Batman. The team was inspired by Douglas Fairbanks' portrayal of Zorro, Lee Falk's comic strip The Phantom, Leonardo DaVinci's ornithopter (glider) blueprints which had large bat-like wings, the classic mystery film The Bat Whispers, and the mystery novel The Circular Staircase. As a result, in May of 1939, DC hit pay-dirt again with one of the most memorable and iconic fictional characters in history, Batman! Witnessing the murder of his parents as a child leads millionaire Bruce Wayne to train himself to physical and intellectual perfection and don a bat-themed costume in order to fight crime. Detective Comics 27 is one of the most desirable and valuable comic books to own, an important part of American pop culture history.

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

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?
Overstreet Guide 2016 G/VG (3.0) value = $16,500.

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!

classic hypodermic needle/bondage cover
Highest Graded
This book's jarring cover inaugurates a tradition that has remained nearly undisturbed to the modern day, with the Caped Crusader being the featured star of this venerable title. This classic image captures all the gruesome drama and atmosphere beloved of year-one Batman, and shows why the character quickly vaulted to the top of the collective consciousness of Golden Age comic readers. The horrific mood and tone of the inaugural Bat-tales give them a feel unlike anything that came after, directly inspiring the early-70s Adams revamp and the look of the blockbuster 1989 movie. The hero's popularity is evident not only in his cover appearance, but by the bright-red banner assuring readers he would appear in every issue thereafter.
The horrific mood and tone of the inaugural Bat-tales give them a feel unlike anything that came after, directly inspiring the early-70's Adams revamp and the look of the blockbuster 1989 movie. This book has undergone extensive restoration, and now appears to be brand-spanking new, imagine taking a trip back in time and snapping up one of these beauts from your local newsstand, comic collecting just doesn't get any better than that.

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.

Lew Schwartz cvr/art; classic cvr, origin of the Joker
The Joker has become nearly as ingrained in the modern pop vernacular as Batman. Through dozens of iterations of the character, from comic to tragic, psychotic to absurd, his origin was not revealed until over a decade after his debut. This historic issue, among the rarest of Batman keys, is a perennial favorite with legions of Joker collectors. The comic accomplishes the difficult task of making the devilish killer clown somehow more mysterious and haunting than before.
