You wanna know the price of a valuable Batman comic?


CARMINE INFANTINO AND MURPHY ANDERSON – BATMAN #196 COVER ART

From Heritage Auction Galleries:
Holy headache, Robin — from the heart of the Silver Age’s “Batmania” comes this mind-boggling “cover hook.” The Carmine Infantino/Murphy Anderson art team turned out many of the most compelling covers of the Silver Age, and they produced this “twice-up” “Bats-terpiece” during a year that many aficionados consider to be the zenith of their teamwork.

    DETECTIVE COMICS #27

    From Heritage Auction Galleries:
    This is a comic most every fan dreams of acquiring, the first appearance of Batman! It’s the second most-valuable comic book issue of all, trailing only Action Comics #1 in Overstreet’s ranking of the most valuable comics. The milestone debut of Batman (or rather “the Bat-Man”), with art by Bob Kane, is also the first appearance of Commissioner Gordon. That devil-may-care playboy Bruce Wayne also debuts at the beginning of the tale, and on the last page it’s revealed that he and the Bat-Man are one and the same!

  • Dated: 1939
  • Condition: Apparent VG
  • Sale Date: September 2006
  • Sold for: $35,850.00 (includes Buyers Premium*)
  • *Buyer’s Premium: 19.5%
