CGC No Grade: 0.3
crm/ow pgs; 25th pg only; Fantastic Facts by George Papp, 2nd page of Ginger Snap by Bob Kane
one of the most iconic covers of the Golden Age! 1st app. Joker - new Joker movie may win Oscar for Best Picture (future price jump); 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.

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.

As many comic book fans would surely agree, Batman is far and away the single-most-popular character in the history of the medium. There's easily been over a hundred titles devoted to the Caped Crusader, more than Superman and Spider-Man combined. The iterations of the hero are endless; dark and brooding spirit of vengeance; bright and colorful campy cheeseball; grizzled old veteran in a dystopian future; Holmesian crime-solving brainiac, the list goes on and on. 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. Although the antihero made his solo appearance in the pages of Detective Comics, this book represents a fresh start for the man in gray and blue, one which broadened his appeal to a younger audience due to the addition of Robin.

1st app. Mr. Freeze (Mr. Zero)
Batman #121 bears the distinction of containing the first appearance of Mr. Zero, aka Mr. Freeze. The name change was made thanks to the campy Batman TV series that took the world by storm in the 1960s, and the character would re-appear, with his new moniker, in Detective Comics #373. He would go on to become one of the Bat's most-popular villains, appearing in cartoons, films, and even video games to spin his tragic tale of love on ice.

1st app. Ra's al Ghul by Neal Adams
Obviously influenced by the Shadow and the pulp classics of the early 20th Century, Dennis O'Neil and Neal Adams sought to add a mystic, exotic flavor to the Batman rogues gallery, and created an able, immortal opponent for the Dark Knight by combining Arabic mythology, yellow peril tropes, and late-60s psychedelic flavor. Ra's al Ghul (whose name translates into the Demon's Head) was an immediate favorite with readers, becoming the first truly legendary addition to the Batman mythos since the introduction of the Riddler in the late 1940s, and arguably the second-most influential comics villain after the Joker. His megalomaniacal fervor, startling intelligence, and ferocious skill made his repeated clashes with Batman the stuff of legend, and the addition of his exotic and sensual daugher Talia gave an added frisson to the proceedings, leading to one of the most nuanced and consistently compelling dark romances of the modern comic era. This debut appearance survives in suprisingly low numbers, and the remaining copies almost never come to market, as they are hoarded jealously by fervid Bat-fans who refuse to part with this modern classic. Coupled with a classic Adams cover, making it even more appealing to serious Bronze collectors, this issue never fails to sell for multiples of guide in all grades on the rare occasion it creeps into the marketplace. Note that the character is slowly becoming a major player in the hit Arrow TV series, making his early appearances even more sought after.

classic Adams Joker cvr
The O'Neill and Adams overhaul of the Batman title was closely modeled on pulp classics like the Shadow and Ellery Queen, and took inspiration from the gritty, hard-edged cinema of the late 60s and early 70s. Initially hesitant to include the Dark Knight's most famous villain within this framework, the pair eventually relented under the pressure of longtime Bat-editor Julius Schwartz, who hoped for a chance to jump-start the character's sagging sales, reinventing the clown prince of crime in this instant classic. Discarding the gimmicky crimes and cheap stunts that had accrued onto the character's M.O. since the Silver Age and reemphasizing his homicidal nature and ghastly appearance, O'Neill and Adams took their cue from the character's debut appearance. Darker and nastier in tone than his 1950s and 1960s appearances, Adams initially revamped the Joker's look with a more dapper, realistic fashion sense (though later artists quickly worked out how to return to his more iconic look after this initial reboot). Allowing the character to murder with relish and concoct crimes more morbid than comic, the duo achieved the impossible, taking this most camp of villains and bringing him seamlessly within the new, more noirish world they had created for their caped crusader. Nearly every incarnation of the Joker, including the acclaimed Heath Ledger film performance, can be directly traced to this daring and unforgettable relaunch, a classic not only in Adams' body of work, but in the history of Batman in general.
