one of the most iconic covers of the Golden Age! 1st app. Joker; 1st app. Catwoman (Spring 1940)
BATMAN (1940-2011) #1
CGC FA: 1.0
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.

For those who have dreamed of owning Batman #1 but find themselves continually outbid, here is a perfect opportunity to make your dreams come true. Granted, this copy is in weathered condition, the grade will attest to this fact, but, this remains a copy of one of the top-ten comics of all time, in unrestored condition, for those who have the means to compete for this book, we strongly suggest you take the chance. The prices on top-tier keys are almost guaranteed to rise steadily over the years, lets not forget to mention the upcoming Batman, Joker, and Justice League films currently in some state of pre or post-production over at the DCEU. A venerable piece of pop culture history is what you've got here.

Overstreet Guide 2018 GD (2.0) value = $50,000.
