DESCRIPTION
white pgs; QES Certified: Criteria met: Preferred staple placement + bone-white pages + structural integrity + deep color strike (red, black & yellow)
one of the most iconic covers of the Golden Age! 1st app. Joker; 1st app. Catwoman (Spring 1940)
Larson Copy
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.


Structurally, this stunning example, is almost flawless with the look of a 9.0-9.2 copy. The Lamont Larson copy is one of the top Pedigrees ever discovered. With white pages to boot! Wow!

Artists Information

A celebrity comic artist of the Golden Age, co-created Batman and Robin with Bill Finger, as his brainchild became more in demand he hired an army of ghost artists to illustrate the dearth of Batman features on the market, but all were credited to Kane. His other achievements include the creation of Catwoman, Two-Face and cartoon character Courageous Cat. Kane was the object of some controversy for taking credit for the art and inspiration of others, but he was also undoubtedly an important figure in the history of comics. He published an updated version of his autobiography "Batman and Me: The Saga Continues" shortly before his death in 1998. He got his start at the Eisner/Iger studio and was inducted into the Will Eisner Comic Book Hall of Fame.
