By the second issue of Batman the transformation of the character and franchise from dark, brooding, mystery of the night to cheerful (if bizarre) puncher of bad persons was complete. Even the backgrounds of these covers mark a decisive change from the pre-Robin era: from dense, detailed settings full of menace to bright, to eye-catching color washes meant to pry coins from the pockets of precocious boys. Despite the flattening of the character's idiosyncrasies, there was also no denying the inventiveness and joy of these classic-era tales, with Kane's ghost artists -fine craftsmen all- filling pages and pages with deliriously imaginative locales, perfectly craggy thug faces, and no end of action and mayhem.
The solid red wash that dominates the background of this cover shows very few signs of this comic’s venerable vintage, after eighty years, this book has found its way into this Event Auction and awaits one determined bidder to bring it to its new home, where it would make a fine centerpiece for a Golden Age, Batman, or DC collection. This comic remains in pretty impressive condition, the construction is sound, with a clean perimeter and nice colors that read well, this is sure to be a popular item come hammer time.

Overstreet Guide 2020 VF (8.0) value = $21,700.
