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 amongst 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.
Swinging forth in harmony, this compelling cover conveys the drama and camaraderie of Batman and the Boy Wonder as they debut in tandem. This well-loved copy of Batman #1 will become an invaluable possession to one lucky bidder. The married cover and light foxing don't detract from the vivacity of the art that cements the dynamic duo as icons for centuries to come.
