DESCRIPTION
A 15% BUYER'S PREMIUM WILL BE ADDED TO THIS ITEM AT CONCLUSION OF THE AUCTION
crm/ow pgs; Sl(A-1) sm amt ct, pcs added, spine split sealed to cvr, cvr & int reinforced, bttm staple replaced
one of the most iconic covers of the Golden Age! 1st app. Joker; 1st app. Catwoman (Spring 1940)
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.


A game-changing comic, Batman #1 is highly sought-after in any grade, and this copy carries a miraculous 7.5 from CGC. This book is restored, with a small amount of color touch, pieces added to the cover, a sealed spine split, a replaced bottom staple, and some reinforcement to the cover and interiors. It earned a Slight (A-1) grade for its restoration, meaning that the restoration was minimal, with all work performed with the goal of better conservation in mind. It shows how thoughtfully it was done, with how crisp and clean the cover looks. The yellow background and red silhouette look fantastic, as well as the central figures of Batman and Robin, and the classic Batman logo. This really is a stunning book. This is a very handsome copy of the first appearance of Joker and Catwoman, as well as the debut issue of Batman's own title? Bid title on this momentous key!

Overstreet Guide 2021 VF- (7.5) value = $359,625.
