Batman: First Appearance and Origin at Auction
BID NOW! AUCTION ENDS WEEK OF JUNE 11-15TH
Summer 1938. Superman was a runaway success for DC in and lightning struck again a year later when the team of Bob Kane and Bill Finger introduced the Batman to the world. Alongside Action Comics #1, Detective Comics #27 is one of the pillars upon which comic book collecting was built. “Although it goes without saying, I’m saying it anyway,” stated Vincent Zurzolo, COO of ComicConnect. “Detective Comics #27 is one of the most desirable and valuable comics on planet Earth and is an incredibly important piece of pop culture history. Every investor needs a copy in their portfolio.”
While issue #27 brought the Batman’s first appearance, it took until Detective Comics #33 for readers to learn the story of how Batman came to be. Starting with the cold-blooded murder of Thomas and Martha Wayne, Bruce’s solemn vow to make war on criminals, and the years he spent training and perfecting his mind and body, Batman’s origin has cemented itself in pop culture.
“Show me someone who doesn’t know Batman’s origin and I’ll show you the rock they’ve been living under,” joked Vincent Zurzolo, ComicConnect’s COO. “And check out that crazy cover. The Batman is packing heat breaking the ‘no guns’ code he swore to uphold in the decades of stories that followed.” Investment collectors can make a run on the world’s highest graded copy, Detective Comics #33 CGC 9.2.
