After the success of his first appearance in Detective Comics #27, Batman was given his own series in the spring of 1940. Rally’s #BATMAN1 is an original copy of the landmark Batman #1 issue, which featured the Dark Knight’s origin story and the first appearance of both the Joker and Catwoman. Graded FR/GD 1.5 by CGC, #BATMAN1 is one of the top 100 graded copies in existence and with less than one hundred publicly available sales over the past twenty years, it’s no wonder why this issue is one of the most valuable and highly sought-after Golden Age comic books.

“It is evidence of the greatness and power of the Batman concept that the character has appeared continuously over eight decades…”

— Peter Sanderson, Comic Book Historian
