BATMAN (1940-2011) #1
CGC FA/GD: 1.5
Bob Kane and Batman co-creator Bill Finger wiped the grime off Gotham and added a bright, youthful cohort to the Batman mythos. 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 not only the first appearance of the infamous and remarkably influential Catwoman but also of the immortal Joker, Batman #1 is consistently among the top-ten-most-desirable comics in the world, always demanding impressive prices and always a super-hot item in our auctions. As knowledgeable collectors are aware, top-tier keys are becoming more and more difficult to find on the market, as owners know well enough to hold on to these trophies and lock them away for years or sometimes generations.
Although this copy is graded at an unassuming 1.5 it has a surprisingly vibrant visual appeal. The cover has small tape repairs but otherwise, there is very little noticeable wear to the exterior of the book. The sunny yellow background draws attention to the contrasting black cape that trails Batman as he swings into the middle of the image with his trusty Boy Wonder. It's a lovely FA/GD and any collector would be thrilled to possess it.
