DESCRIPTION
A 15% BUYER'S PREMIUM WILL BE ADDED TO THIS ITEM AT CONCLUSION OF THE AUCTION
crm/ow pages; only 2 graded higher
Bob Kane/Jerry Robinson cover/art; 3rd app of Catwoman (1st in costume)
Early Batman comics are notoriously difficult to procure and issue #3 has one of the best covers of the first ten issues of the run. This one looks like it may have been the basis for the animated intro of the iconic Adam West TV series. You can almost hear the theme song as you look at it! It just so happens to contain the first appearance of Catwoman in full costume and the first appearance of the Puppet Master as well.


This copy of Batman #3 is structurally solid and has a fresh-looking, inky black cover that boasts an iconic image of the Dynamic Duo. It is important to note that black covers are very difficult to find in high-grade as stress lines and color breaks are very easy to detect. According to CGC, this copy is tied for the third-highest graded on the census. Recent sales at this grade have gone for impressive numbers. Early Batmans are unbeatable investment books and are perennially hot auction lots, and Catwoman remains one of the most collectible and popular of all Batman villains. A Batman #3 9.0 sold for $22,800 in February 2019.

Overstreet Guide 2023 VF/NM (9.0) value = $22,875.
