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 conterfeiting 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.
One of the blue-chip comic investments, Detective Comics #27 is a no-brainer buy in any market and this moderately restored copy offers up a stunning visage.

Overstreet Guide 2017 VF- (7.5) value = $725,000.

Sure, it's seen better days, missing a cover, brittle pages, taped together, but, it is still Detective #27 so ask yourself, when will this opportunity ever pass your way again? Someone's dream is about to come true, will it be yours?

2nd app. of Batman; Kane, Shuster, Guardineer art
The Jon Berk Collection
This might be the most undervalued non-key in the Overstreet Guide. Perhaps the cover led collectors astray, not realizing its importance as the second-ever appearance of the Batman. Within, though, Kane and Finger were doggedly building the noirish mythology of their shadowy new hero, easily outshining the Slam Bradley and Fu Manchu features shoring up the rest of the book. By the time this issue roared off stands and into adolescent back pockets, DC was no longer uncertain about the potential of their new creation.

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.

classic hypodermic needle/bondage cover
This book's jarring cover inaugurates a tradition that has remained nearly undisturbed to the modern day, with the Caped Crusader being the featured star of this venerable title. This classic image captures all the gruesome drama and atmosphere beloved of year-one Batman, and shows why the character quickly vaulted to the top of the collective consciousness of Golden Age comic readers. The horrific mood and tone of the inaugural Bat-tales give them a feel unlike anything that came after, directly inspiring the early-70s Adams revamp and the look of the blockbuster 1989 movie. The hero's popularity is evident not only in his cover appearance, but by the bright-red banner assuring readers he would appear in every issue thereafter.
A surefire investment in any grade, this copy rests in the sweet spot, in decent condition, and at a price beneath high-roller levels.

Overstreet Guide 2017 VG- (3.5) value = $24,500.

Yes, that's him. His face may have been colored pink by some unknown and probably harried staff artist, but this is the first cover appearance of the Joker, the most-collected cover character in comics fandom. Couple this with the first-ever appearance of Clayface, one of the Batman's most memorable villains, and this is a perfect Bat-collectible.
