Bob Kane File
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.

He got his start at the Eisner/Iger studio and was inducted into the Will Eisner Comic Book Hall of Fame.
