DETECTIVE COMICS #36
CGC VF: 8.0
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 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. The instantly recognizable cover of this issue is one of the more memorable of the Golden Age Detectives, and the action within the book is equally enthralling, centering around Strange's use of a fog machine to cover up his underlings' crimes, Batman eventually thwarts the ne'er-do-well and locks him up, but Strange vows to reap his revenge.
Overstreet Guide 2017 VF (8.0) value = $40,000.
