Detective Comics #29 Billy Wright pedigree (DC, 1939) CGC FN/VF 7.0 Off-white to white pages. The second-ever Batman cover is a very desirable book indeed, and it's ranked among the top 20 Golden Age books by Overstreet. The cover art by Bob Kane is simply electrifying, and we would argue that Batman is more "in character" here than on his first appearance in #27. This is the Darknight Detective that every comic collector knows and loves! This book is seldom found in unrestored condition, and this is the best copy to be offered for public sale in the CGC era. Overstreet 2011 FN 6.0 value = $14,400; VF 8.0 value = $36,000. CGC census 2/12: 2 in 7.0, 2 higher.
