Description Detective Comics #27 (DC, 1939) CGC GD 2.0 Off-white pages. Awe-inspiring in any grade, and CGC has certified just 24 "Universal" label copies to date. The issue was published a year after Action #1, but the two issues are neck and neck for the title of "Most Revered Comic Issue Ever" -- and the value keeps climbing every year. Just check our archives! For those of you who just landed, it's the first appearance of Batman and of Commissioner Gordon, and the beginning of an historical run that's continued to this day in comics, TV, movies, and other media. Co-creator Bob Kane did the cover and contributed story art, as did Joe Shuster and Fred Guardineer. CGC notes, "2 pieces of tape on interior spine of cover." Overstreet 2011 GD 2.0 value = $80,000. CGC census 2/12: 1 in 2.0, 22 higher.
