classic Batman over castle cover by Bob Kane! 1st Batplane! (9/39)
Detective issues #27 and 38 may get all the attention, but true Bat-fanatics and Golden Age aficionados know that pre-Robin issues #28 through 37 contain some of the moodiest and compelling Batman stories ever published and some of the most dynamic covers of the pre-war era. This issue is probably the most famous and most difficult to obtain as it s adorned with the iconic Golden Age visage of the caped crusader. Dark, brooding, and classic, this cinematic image more than any other captures the drama and crude power of early Batman and easily demonstrates why so many Bat-collectors are nearly fetishistic about this brief but fertile period in the character s history. No serious DC Golden Age collection is complete without this masterpiece, which explains the feeding frenzy that ensues on the rare instances that copies make it to market. The Batman tale contained within this book s pages bears the distinction of introducing not only the Batgyro, a precursor to the Batplane, but also the famous Batarang, a useful tool still brandished by the Caped Crusader.

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.

origin & 1st app. of Batgirl (Barbara Gordon)
Inspired by the Silver Age Bat-Girl, who was devised as a sidekick for Bat-Woman during the family-friendly days of the 1950s, the producers of the 1960s Batman TV series tasked DC editor Julius Schwartz with the creation of a new character to boost the show's sagging ratings with female audiences. Schwartz, in collaboration with Gardner Fox and Carmine Infantino, responded with a new, improved Batgirl, this time tying her in more closely with Batman by casting her as Commissioner Gordon's daughter, Barbara. While the TV show didn't last much longer, the comic character was an instant success with readers, becoming a vital and integral part of the DC Universe over the next half-century.

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.
