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.

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.

Second City Collection
A couple of the names that pop up in the credits of this issue are those of Stan Lee and John Romita, two men who would loom large in the future of Marvel Comics, and here we see them toiling away, collaborating on these tawdry thrillers, specifically on a three-page "punch line" story called "The Man Who was a God". Interestingly, there is a short sci-fi / horror tale at the end of this book called "The Iron Man", and although it is completely uncredited, one can only wonder if Stan "The Man" had something to do with this quickie, and perhaps filed the concept away for future dusting off. It's these small kernels of ideas that appear in Mystery Tales that would eventually germinate into grandiose concepts, and the clues hidden in these sleeper books are just one of the many reasons to snap up copies for your personal collection.
