classic Fred Ray Joker cover; Penguin app.Joker covers always bring a premium at auction and this cover is a perfect example why. With Batman as the King, Robin as the Jack, and the Joker as, who else, the Joker, Fred Ray's fabulous design was an instant classic. As was the style of the day, someone usually got punched in the jaw and nothing's better than Joker getting a good socking from Batman! The Penguin makes a fowl appearance as well. Art by creator Bob Kane and Jerry Robinson.
While this cover does have shadowing around the top and right side, the central image has been left relatively free of wear, Batman, Robin, and the Joker are all clean and clear, with pigments that have remained loud and proud. The purples of the Joker's vestments are palpable, while the Dynamic Duo is brought to the fore by their respective red and blue backgrounds. A handsome and solid VG+ copy of a beloved Batman issue.
Overstreet Guide 2018 VG/F (5.0) value = $3,125.
