Kentucky Collection
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.


Na na na na na na na na, Batman! This is one of the most classic of all Batman covers, the iconic image of the Dynamic Duo running towards the reader never gets old, and speaking of things never getting old, have you taken a good look at this cover? It is common knowledge among comic collectors of the Golden Age that black backgrounds do not generally age well, as they tend to display each and every imperfection they pick up over time, and eighty years leaves a lot of opportunities for dings and dents to occur. The fact that this copy has remained in such well-kept shape all these years is reason enough to duke it out over ownership bragging rights in this auction, there are only eight copies higher up the census than this amazing time capsule comic.

Overstreet Guide 2020 VF+ (8.5) value = $14,750.
