DETECTIVE COMICS (1937-2011; 2016-) #38
CGC VF-: 7.5
One of the most important issues of the Golden Age, Detective Comics #38 marks the promising debut of the best-known sidekick in the history of comics: Robin, the Boy Wonder! Dick Grayson, ward of millionaire Bruce Wayne, lends a hand to the Dark Knight when just one hero won't do. Created in 1940 by the team of Bob Kane, Bill Finger, and Jerry Robinson, Dick Grayson's tragic backstory concerning his similarly slain parents made him the perfect companion for the ominously orphaned Bruce Wayne. Robin attracted younger readers and doubled the sales of Bat-comics thereby solidifying the Batman mythos that would continue to grow in popularity through today. There have been many different iterations of the teenagers to don Robin's trademark yellow cape, red suit, green boots and gloves but there will only ever be one original Boy Wonder. Bob Kane's signature style depicts an exuberant Grayson bursting onto the cover and into legend.

Thanks to professional restoration, this book has been given a new lease on life, restored books have gained acceptance as original condition books become increasingly difficult to find or afford. The colors and construction on this comic make it seem almost like new, and you really can't go wrong owning any copy of this classic key in any condition.

Overstreet Guide 2019 VF- (7.5) value = $67,500.
