Item Description

Detective #36 CGC 2.0 (Universal) a rare pre-Robin Batman issue from February 1940 in unrestored condition, Off-White pages, in the brand new state-of-the-art CGC holder.  4 extra staples added, not manufacturing. This early Batman appearance features a classic Bob Kane cover and art, the origin and first appearance of Dr. Hugo Strange, which Overstreet deemed Batman's first major villain, and the very first appearance of Batman’s finned gloves. Only a few copies of this issue ever see the light of day, and routinely go for multiples of guide—an 8.0 went this year for more than $50K. NO RESERVE!

Note: It was pointed out to me that the 8.0  sold in September 2015, not "this year."  Sorry for any confusion.
