DESCRIPTION
brittle pgs, from bound volume, 2 extra staples added, not manufacturing, trimmed, incomplete: 13th & 14th page missing, affects story
one of the most iconic covers of the Golden Age! 1st app. Joker - new Joker movie may win Oscar for Best Picture (future price jump); 1st app. Catwoman (Spring 1940)
Bob Kane File
One of the most famous comics of the Golden Age, featuring one of the most iconic covers, Batman #1 is the perfect cornerstone for any new GA collector; an accessible comic that only increases in value and popularity year after year featuring the debut of fan favorites the Joker and the Cat, later dubbed Catwoman.



There's easily been over a hundred titles devoted to the Caped Crusader, more than Superman and Spider-Man combined. Starring in several serials, animated series, TV shows, movies, video games, novelizations, record albums, soundtracks, Batman is everywhere! Along with the Boy Wonder, the Dynamic Duo is universally recognized in the shared global human consciousness and this issue, Batman #1, is a milestone key as it serves to announce that Batman and Robin are here and they're here to stay.
This issue is from the personal collection of Batman creator Bob Kane. While having a Bob Kane File Copy in your collection is a prize in and of itself the bound volume from which it came were gifted to Mr. Kane by DC Comics, so it is also a DC File Copy. Because these items were in a bound volume, the books still retain their striking colors. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to snatch up not only iconic issues of the Dark Knight himself, which are rare in any grade, but also copies that were touched by the character's co-creator, Bob Kane.

UPDATE: Original replacements of the missing pages will be provided to the winning bidder at no cost. DC s original binder, which contained this issue and was embossed with Bob Kane s name, will be offered to the winning bidder for an additional 2% over the final bid.
