Less than a year after his 1st Appearance in Detective Comics #27, Batman was given his own self-titled series with the release of Batman #1 in 1940. Introducing The Joker and Catwoman, Batman #1 remains a landmark issue in comic history, more than 80 years later. #BATMAN is a 1940 Batman #1 Comic Book graded CGC 8.0. With just 7 examples graded higher, #BATMAN is one of the finest preserved copies of one of the most sought-after comics in the world. Copies of Batman #1 in any grade are nearly impossible to find and public sales of CGC 8.0 examples have occurred just eight times since 2002.

“[F]inding a key issue from the Golden Age era of comics — a time when publications used cheap paper, were read disposably on a massive scale — is extremely rare.”

— The Hollywood Reporter
