Carmine Infantino cover/art; 1st app. of Poison Ivy (Pamela Lillian Isley).
Inspired by a Nathaniel Hawthorne story, Robert Kanigher and Shelly Moldoff created the femme fatale Poison Ivy, immune to all toxins and able to control plants with her mind, the character's designers would have had no clue how Ivy would grow in stature to become one of the Bat-Mythos' most popular figures. Her romantic entanglements with Batman are the stuff of legend, and this issue is where it all started. Serious fans of Poison Ivy need to own a copy of this book.
A stupendous copy, this Batman #181 bears a 9.6 grade from CGC and white pages. This cover is pristine, with a beautiful flawless classic DC checkerboard banner and Batman logo. Batman and Robin scowl at each other as Poison Ivy stands between them, physically and emotionally. All three characters look so sharp on this iconic Infantino/Anderson cover. Having appeared in countless Batman comics, as well as movies, shows, videogames and other spin-off material, Poison Ivy's first appearance will always be a sought-after key issue. There are only 3 CGC-graded copies higher than this. Make your friends and enemies green with envy by owning such a beautiful book.

Overstreet Guide 2021 NM- (9.2) value = $3,800.
