Grade:
CGC FA/GD: 1.5
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 GA collector; an accessible comic that only increases in value and popularity year after year featuring the debut of fan favorites the Joker and the Cat, later dubbed Catwoman.

There's easily been over a hundred titles devoted to the Caped Crusader, more than Superman and Spider-Man combined. Starring in several serials, animated series, TV shows, movies, video games, novelizations, record albums, soundtracks, Batman is everywhere! Along with the Boy Wonder, the Dynamic Duo is universally recognized in the shared global human consciousness and this issue, Batman #1, is a milestone key as it serves to announce that Batman and Robin are here and they're here to stay.

This book is a solid investment at any grade, and this particularly impressive FR/GD copy is sure to turn heads with its beautiful centering. A 1.5 copy with brittle pages sold for $85,000 in the past year, and this copy, with better pages, and great eye appeal, is sure to exceed that number. A sturdy and appealing unrestored copy which makes for a perfect entry-level example of this historic and important key. This is a very favorable copy with superb color strike -- the colors POP!

Overstreet Guide 2017 GD (2.0) value = $40,000.
