Jerry Robinson Joker cvr; Bob Kane, Jack Kirby art
Rockford Copy
Highest Graded
CGC NM: 9.4
Joker covers are universally adored and Batman collectors are investing multiples of guide to win them at auction. This classic issue from 1943, beautifully illustrated by the Joker's co-creator, the one and only Jerry Robinson, has the Clown Prince promising "A Crime a Day"! This issue of Detective #71 also contains a Boy Commandos Christmas story by Simon and Kirby, and an ad for Boy Commandos #1.

This copy is certified an astounding NM by the good folks at CGC, and is one of only two copies on the census in 9.4 condition, and there are none higher so you know this is a special book. What's even more special is that this one is a Rockford copy! What else can be said about this book as it is nearly perfect with no visible defects or blemishes? Nothing! Definitely a prize awaiting a serious collector of high-grade Golden Age DC comics!

Overstreet Guide 2017 NM- (9.2) value = $10,000.
