DETECTIVE COMICS (1937-2011; 2016-) #8

DC
Grade:
CGC VF: 8.0
Taking its cue from the first issue of Detective Comics, this yellow peril cover expands on the evocative imagery of that famous book. The early, pre-Batman Detectives were a powerhouse in the overstuffed world of crime anthology comics. Introducing some of the more popular stars of the pre-superhero era: series regulars Speed Saunders, Larry Steele, Cosmo, the Phantom of Disguise, and Slam Bradley ruled the roost before caped crusaders crashed the party. The Creig Flessel cover hints at the guilty pleasures in this comic and dares viewers to open the pages to discover just what jewels are contained in this mysterious book.

This VF copy is tied for the second-highest certified on the census as brash yellows and deep blacks dominate this exemplary cover. This book seems untouched by time as it has traveled through the ages retaining its solid structure.

Overstreet Guide 2019 VF (8.0) value = $13,750.
