BATMAN (1940-2011) #1
Publisher:
DC
Grade:
CGC VF: 8.0
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 the debut of fan favorites the Joker and the Cat, later dubbed Catwoman.

There's easily been over a hundred titles devoted to the Caped Crusader, more than Superman and Spider-Man combined. Starring in several serials, animated series, TV shows, movies, video games, novelizations, record albums, soundtracks, Batman is everywhere! Along with the Boy Wonder, the Dynamic Duo is universally recognized in the shared global human consciousness and this issue, Batman #1, is a milestone key as it serves to announce that Batman and Robin are here and they're here to stay.

This QES Certified copy is one of the finest original condition examples we have had at auction. The colors are, in a word, brilliant, the bright yellow wash and simplistic background design, intended to catch the eyes of the kiddie market, are resplendent, perfectly highlighting the two figures swinging into history. This copy is in extraordinary condition, one might guess eight years, not eighty, have passed since it was published. Those with the means to compete for this gem should make sure to clear their calendars.

Overstreet Guide 2019 VF (8.0) value = $376,000.
