classic Flessel Mr. Chang cover (10/37)
In an homage to the first issue of Detective Comics, this yellow peril cover expands on the evocative imagery on that famous book. The early, pre-Batman Detective Comics were a powerhouse in the overstuffed world of the crime anthology comic. Introducing some of the more-popular stars of the pre-superhero era: Speed Saunders, Larry Steele, Cosmo, the Phantom of Disguise, and Slam Bradley ruled the roost before caped crusaders crashed the party. The Creig Flessel cover design hints at the guilty pleasures contained in this comic, and dares viewers to open the pages and discover just what jewels are contained in this mysterious book.

1st app. Dr. Death; 2nd Batman cover
The dark castle, the night gloom, the dark cape, the evil scientist -- the influence of pre-code horror cinema on Bob Kane's nocturnal creation is nowhere more evident than on this classic and painfully rare cover, one of the pre-Robin Detective issues over which Bat-collectors drool. You haven't really experienced the crude power of these early Bat-books until you've seen them in their original pulpy glory, and this second-ever cover appearance by the Batman is still hugely powerful to this day. The story therein pits the Caped Crusader against Dr. Karl Hellfern, aka Doctor Death, who, like all great villains, intends to take over the world, but first, must rid himself of that meddling Batman, which leads to an action-packed tale of mayhem. It's well documented that once Batman received his own title the stories became quite a bit more tame than the ones depicted in early Detective Comics. This issue is no exception as Batman painfully takes a bullet to the shoulder in this tale. How's that for gritty?

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.

Bob Kane/Jerry Robinson classic Joker "double guns" cvr
This is one of the best known and loved Joker covers of the Golden Age. Jerry Robinson's depiction of the Clown Prince of Crime lends him a sense of menace that had been somewhat lacking since the early, pre-Robin era. Enacting a dastardly plot involving incomplete gifts and missing body parts, "The Harlequin's Hoax" story within these pages is a classic Batman mixture of mystery and action.

Lew Schwartz cvr/art; classic cvr, origin of the Joker
The Joker has become nearly as ingrained in the modern pop vernacular as Batman. Through dozens of iterations of the character, from comic to tragic, psychotic to absurd, his origin was not revealed until over a decade after his debut. This historic issue, among the rarest of Batman keys, is a perennial favorite with legions of Joker collectors. The comic accomplishes the difficult task of making the devilish killer clown somehow more mysterious and haunting than before. The origin story presented within these pages is typical of the convoluted plot-lines of the Golden Age, but the harrowing undercurrent of the acid bath that created the Joker's terrifying rictus set a legend in motion, eventually leading to the modern version of the Harlequin of Hate, and, in doing so, making this book, retroactively, into so much more than was intended at the time of its creation.
