Issue #117 of Detective Comics features the cover story "Steeplejack's Showdown", and for those who don't know what a steeplejack is, it is a person who climbs up tall structures to repair things, as is so perfectly presented by Ray Burnley's angular artwork on this arresting illustration. Robin races to Batman's aid as an overall-clad, gun-toting madman threatens to drop the Caped Crusader to certain doom. A thrilling and eye catching cover to be sure.



This comic is in stunning condition, remaining newsstand fresh after seventy-three years is no small feat, in an auction packed with high-grade books, this issue certainly stands out from the pack due to its mind-boggling preservation.

Overstreet Guide 2019 NM- (9.2) value = $1,650.
