Grade:
CGC F/VF: 7.0
The Golden Age Scarecrow was created through a collaboration between Bill Finger, Bob Kane, and Jerry Robinson and the macabre villain only made two appearances before being shelved until his Silver Age revival. Detective Comics #73 features the second of these appearances and bears the distinction of being the only cover to feature the character in the era.


Bold, glowing reds and yellows serve as the perfect backdrop to the shady and sinister Scarecrow as he does battle with the Dynamic Duo. The corners are sharp and the centering and registration are immaculate, this is an extremely appealing copy that comes across as higher than its grade. This book will certainly be at the center of some heated bidding at auction.

Overstreet Guide 2018 F/VF (7.0) value = $4,350.
