No offense to the creators, but they assembled the galaxy’s greatest heroes to fight off a giant starfish?
With the Silver Age of comics in full swing, DC took their ambitions even further by creating a world that connected all of their superheroes.
The Justice League of America made their debut in 1960’s Brave and the Bold #28, and for the first time in comic history, all of DC’s most popular characters shared the page.
The JLA was formed after Starro, an alien starfish, starts wreaking havoc on Earth’s most populated cities.
The first incarnation of the JLA was made up of Aquaman, Wonder Woman, Flash, Martian Manhunter, and Green Lantern.
Unfortunately, Batman and Superman were just too busy to worry about Starro.
Making his first appearance in Brave and the Bold #28 is Snapper Carr, the JLA’s ordinary teenage fan boy.
Finally, in 2017, DC and Warner Bros. will do the impossible and we’ll see one of the greatest superhero teams of all time in film.
Despite its historical importance, I don’t think Starro will be making an appearance in the upcoming Justice League movies.
As one of the most important comics in history, Brave and the Bold #28 is very valuable!
Even in dismal condition, with tears, creases, and stains, B&B #28 is worth hundreds.
The highest sale ever for B&B #25 was $120,000 for a CGC 9.2, but that price would definitely be beaten if the only CGC 9.4 were to be sold again.
Besides historical importance, another driving factor for B&B #28’s value is its scarcity.
So far, the highest CGC grade is 9.4, and only 10 copies of this comic hold a rating higher than 9.0.
