Item Description

Amazing find and VERY rare!  You are looking at the 1st cover appearance of Two-Face !  Rarely does this comic come up on the market.  I think of it as part of the greatest 3 issue run in the history of comic book villians and that is issue 67 (1st Penguin cover and most iconic cover of Penguin); issue 68 (1st Two-Face cover and most iconic cover of Two-Face); and issue 69 (the greatest cover of Joker period!).  Issue 67, 68, and 69 are very special to me because they are in sequence and amazing.  This auction is for the Issue 68 though and its a beautiful 5.5 - I am not kidding, I don't know how this got only a 5.5 as has major eye appeal and looks better than most 7.5s!  See the pics - they pics don't lie...its gorgeous!  This issue 68 was graded by CGC and the serial number is # 0164215028.  Just has amazing eye appeal!  Last pic is of my comics and is only meant to compliment the issue 68 in celebrating my favorite comic run ever, "Detective Comics".  Shipping with signature confirmation and insurance is $25.  Below is the CGC population report for this comic.  That's another thing, how can these beautiful Golden Age comics that have 30-60 graded copies in their population fetch the prices they do and then you have comics like Hulk 181 and Walking Dead which have so many.  Hulk 181 has literally 8757 graded copies and Walking Dead #1 has 2539 graded copies.  Heck, Amazing Fantasy # 15 has 2569 graded copies.  First cover appearance of Two-Face has 57 graded copies by CGC.   Where is the real value?  Golden Age, people!  Anyways, I will stop venting and here is the population report (as of 16 Dec 2016):
