Well here we are with part 2 of our Hot Picks Special. On this edition we’re going to focus on the comic that first introduced us to the Batman. Detective Comics are up next…..
Detective Comics #27 – Okay so if you live in Riverdale or maybe even Asgard you probably won’t know what this comic signifies. But we are here to educate aren’t we?! This is this first appearance of Commissioner Gordon. No really it is…but this isn’t the reason this comic goes for a whopping 1.2 million dollars. This is the birth; the entrance into the DC universe of the Dark Knight himself, Batman.
Detective Comics #29 – The first appearance of Dr. Death.
Detective Comics #31 – You can venture a guess on JUST how important a comic book character is when the listing’s of the book contain first appearance’s of his gadgets and modes of transportation. This here folks contains the first look at the Batarang and Batplane. No big deal right? How about $70,000 for this comic? Yes thought so.
Detective Comics #36 – First appearance of Dr. Hugo Strange and Batman’s finned gloves. Yes those little pointy glove things….first appearance. Yes he’s an important dude.
Detective Comics #38 – Ah yes the Boy Wonder! Robin makes his first appearance right here. Boy oh boy if that Robin character only knew what he was to get into. Death, bad guy, resurrected, new identity, new costume, replaced, quit……..etc. But this isn’t about the second fiddle dude, although this sidekick does command some big bucks here. Say around $85,000.
