one of the most iconic covers of the Golden Age! 1st app. Joker; 1st app. Catwoman (Spring 1940)
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.

Bob Kane/Jerry Robinson cvr/art; 3rd app of Catwoman (1st in costume)
Early Batman comics are notoriously difficult to procure and issue #3 has one of the best covers of the first ten issues of the run. This one looks like it may have been the basis for the animated intro of the iconic Adam West TV series. You can almost hear the theme song as you look at it! It just so happens to contain the first appearance of Catwoman in full costume and the first appearance of the Puppet Master as well.

Logo clipped, white pgs
classic cover
The Batman cover formula is well in place by this issue: feature the Dynamic Duo in cheerful, barrel chested action poses with striking, often solid color backgrounds, slap that enormous logo on the top, and watch kids fight over the result. The brash action and pulpy adventure of the early Bat issues is plainly evident in this classic image. By this time, the formula had been well enough established that scribes Gardner Fox and Bill Finger, largely responsible for growing the Batman rogues' gallery through the Golden Age, were coming up with more and more ridiculous ideas for themed villains, such as this issue's Clock Maker. This bizarre baddie, obsessed with the loss of time and the intricacy of clockmaking, neatly fits into the series' themes of loss and mortality, even if the stories themselves were drifting away from pulp melodrama into pure action. There are still plenty of dark, moody moments in this fascinating attempt to create a new Joker/Luthor/etc.

classic Fred Ray Joker cover; Penguin app.
Joker covers always bring a premium at auction and this cover is a perfect example why. With Batman as the King, Robin as the Jack, and the Joker as, who else, the Joker, Fred Ray's fabulous design was an instant classic. As was the style of the day, someone usually got punched in the jaw and nothing's better than Joker getting a good socking from Batman! The Penguin makes a fowl appearance as well. Art by creator Bob Kane and Jerry Robinson.

classic Batman origin issue; Catwoman app.
Just as Superman's origin was gussied up for the new, post-WWII era of heroic action, so too did DC add drama and color to the Batman's already iconic origin tale. Previously, all that was known of the Caped Crusader's beginnings came from the crude but affecting one-page debut tale in seen in Batman #1, leaving the door wide open for Batman co-creator Bill Finger to expand upon the hero's dark origins and spin a new tale of revenge. Re-encountering Joe Chill, the boxer-faced thug who murdered his parents, the Dark Knight reveals his secret Bruce Wayne identity to the aging gunman in a startling and still-effective scene that is rightly legendary, and proves that maligned Bat-Daddy Bob Kane could still turn out surprisingly solid work given the right impetus. An instant classic, capped with a cover as revered as any from the first year of Bat-appearances in Detective, this is a major, badly underappreciated key, made even more collectible due to the lower print runs of post-WWII comics and the surprisingly low number of surviving copies in acceptable condition. One of the most important comics published in the late Golden Age, and one of the top five Bat-keys of all time.

Bob Kane cvr/art; Joe Shuster, Fred Guardineer art, last Batman solo issue
This comic would be the last time the Batman would fight crime as a solo act in Detective Comics as he was to be accompanied by his trusty sidekick, Robin, in an effort to appeal to readers of a younger demographic. While this is not the last pulpy, moody, dark Detective cover, it represents a shift in the tone and demeanor of the early, dangerous, lone-wolf vigilante, which is only one reason Batmaniacs should be chomping at the bit to get their hands on this copy.

Bob Kane/Jerry Robinson cvr/art; origin & 1st app. Robin (Dick Grayson)
One of the most important issues of the Golden Age, Detective Comics #38 marks the promising debut of the best-known sidekick in the history of comics: Robin, the Boy Wonder! Dick Grayson, ward of millionaire Bruce Wayne, lends a hand to the Dark Knight when just one hero won't do. Created in 1940 by the team of Bob Kane, Bill Finger, and Jerry Robinson, Dick Grayson's tragic backstory concerning his similarly slain parents made him the perfect companion for the ominously orphaned Bruce Wayne. Robin attracted younger readers and doubled the sales of Bat-comics thereby solidifying the Batman mythos that would continue to grow in popularity through today. There have been many different iterations of the teenagers to don Robin's trademark yellow cape, red suit, green boots and gloves but there will only ever be one original Boy Wonder. Bob Kane's signature style depicts an exuberant Grayson bursting onto the cover and into legend.

Will Eisner story, cvr/art; Bob Kane art; 1st and only app. of Wonder Man
Windy City Copy
Wonder Comics #1 owns a special little piece of comicbook history, you see, this issue is the one, and only ever, appearance of Wonder Man. Why, you may ask, did this character only survive through the first issue of his self-titled book? Let's just say it has something to do with one Clark Kent aka Superman, and the obvious resemblances between the two super-beings. DC sued Fox Publications over perceived copyright infringement, and the Will Eisner character was forced into early retirement, but has remained forever in comicbook lore. Wonder Comics, however, persisted, then morphed into the respected Wonderworld Comics after a few issues, which became the home of another Golden Age hit, The Flame, who would then go on the become the inspiration for the Human Torch, but that, my friends, is another story.

Lou Fine's 1st cvr (later swiped by Bob Kane); giant gorilla cover
Among the top artists in the history of the comics business, highly respected among his Golden Age peers and a towering influence on American illustrators since, Lou Fine got his start, like most Golden Age greats, working at the Eisner-Iger studio, ghosting for overworked strip artists and contributing art to numerous strips that helped keep the hungry machine of early comics moving. Quickly rising to the top of his field, Fine's clean and confident line and graceful style changed the look of comics and stood out amongst the crude work churned out by so many small publishers. This, his first published cover, already shows the young Fine at the top of his game, vividly and carefully presenting what, in other hands, would be a rough and gimmicky image. Fox's spotty distribution led to a low number of surviving copies, making this a rare treat indeed.

1st app. Dr. Death; 2nd Batman cover
The dark castle, the night gloom, the dark cape, the evil scientist -- the influence of pre-code horror cinema on Bob Kane's nocturnal creation is nowhere more evident than on this classic and painfully rare cover, one of the pre-Robin Detective issues over which Bat-collectors drool. You haven't really experienced the crude power of these early Bat-books until you've seen them in their original pulpy glory, and this second-ever cover appearance by the Batman is still hugely powerful to this day. The story therein pits the Caped Crusader against Dr. Karl Hellfern, aka Doctor Death, who, like all great villains, intends to take over the world, but first, must rid himself of that meddling Batman, which leads to an action-packed tale of mayhem. It's well documented that once Batman received his own title the stories became quite a bit more tame than the ones depicted in early Detective Comics. This issue is no exception as Batman painfully takes a bullet to the shoulder in this tale. How's that for gritty?

Fred Guardineer submarine battle cvr; Shuster, Kane, Baily art
Early Superman Action covers are scarce -- very scarce. They're also very popular with Golden Age collectors, which means the copies that do make it to market are snapped up almost instantly. This dynamic cover is a great example as to why Superman was so big then, and why GA Supes are so popular now, as the Man of Steel performs the impossible in a realistic-yet-fantastic setting, and brings truth and justice to the downtrodden in his own inimitable fashion. The fifth-ever Superman cover, and a beaut.
