Detecive Comics #27: First Appearance of Batman

Detecive Comics #27: First Appearance of Batman. Super-rare and valuable! Click for values

Much has been said about the May, 1939 debut of Batman in Detective Comics #27.

The fact that more than one copy of Detective #27 has broken the million dollar barrier pretty much trumps whatever else can be said about it.

Depending on whom you ask, it is either Detective #27 or Action #1 that is the most valuable comic book ever printed. (Action #1 currently holds the record, at $3.2m.)

Worth noting is that The Bat-Man, as he was still known at this juncture, is introduced here by his creator, Bob Kane, in an iconic cover illustration.
