1st Slam Bradley/Spy by Siegel & Shuster; SEMINAL KEY, the title that put the "D.C." in DC Comics!
Having practically started the comic book market singlehandedly with the historic New Fun in 1935, Major Malcolm Wheeler-Nicholson partnered with Harry Donenfeld in 1937 to again make history with Detective Comics #1, which launched their new publishing venture as well as kick-started the careers of Superman creators, Siegel and Shuster. The crude Yellow Peril cover helped sell the book to the vital pulp market and hinted at the mysterious yarns spun within. Detective Comics #1 was the beginning of a new beast in print media. Printed more than a year before Action Comics #1, and two ahead of Detective #27, this comic set the stage for a new cast of heroes poised to literarily take on the growing threat of Nazism.

Billy Wright copy
From February 1939. Pre-Batman 'Tecs are among the caviar books of the Golden Age -- and this is one of the scarcest issues, with an infamous cover and typically dark, evocative art within. Pre-Batman issues are even scarcer than the Year One Bat appearances, if you can believe that -- and their moody, grim stories and atmospheric graphics continue to weave a spell over collectors even today.

1st app Batman by Bob Kane; one of the top three most important comics ever published!
After DC Comics' huge success with Superman, editors were looking for another superhero to cash in on, and young creators Bob Kane and Bill Finger came up with The Batman. The team was inspired by Douglas Fairbanks' portrayal of Zorro, Lee Falk's comic strip The Phantom, Leonardo DaVinci's ornithopter (glider) blueprints which had large bat-like wings, the classic mystery film The Bat Whispers, and the mystery novel The Circular Staircase. As a result, in May of 1939, DC hit pay-dirt again with one of the most memorable and iconic fictional characters in history, Batman! Witnessing the murder of his parents as a child leads millionaire Bruce Wayne to train himself to physical and intellectual perfection and don a bat-themed costume in order to fight crime. Detective Comics 27 is one of the most desirable and valuable comic books to own, an important part of American pop culture history.

classic Guardineer cover; 2nd Doctor Death; 4th app. Batman
Detective Comics 30 contains one of the earliest appearances of the Caped Crusader, in a tale which finds him battling the fiendish Doctor Death whom he first encountered in the previous issue and had assumed was dead. The disturbing, violent, pre-code cover is a genuinely striking piece of Golden Age art, and one which we appreciatively get to admire daily on our gallery wall here in our New York City offices. As far as early Bat-books go, this one has a great story, a memorable cover from the days before Batman would become the sole focus of the book.

Flessel cvr/art; rare in any grade (6/37)
For most readers, Detective Comics equals Batman, the character who put the comic in every back pocket. Before the vigilante descended upon an unsuspecting Gotham, Detective Comics served as a home for the pulp-inspired adventures of a handful of private eyes and devious villains.

Comics that pre-date the hero craze are fascinating. The raw power and stark graphic motifs instantly transport the reader into a noirish landscape of shadow and danger. These important issues are a rare glimpse into an industry standing on the precipice of the superhero, and DC (Detective Comics) was the catalyst that sparked the flame. The introduction of Superman and Batman shortly after the publishing of these issues changed the comicbook industry from a small fish to possibly the largest facet of the entertainment world as we know it today. These remarkable and compelling covers, most by the genius Creig Flessel, are a time machine to a pulpier, grittier era, and are beloved of Golden Age comic collectors.
