Why Batman #59 is a Hot Comic

2018 MARKET UPDATE: DROPPED OUT OF THIS YEAR'S LIST

It was a short-lived new entry on the 2017 list. This book deserves a place on the 100 most under-valued books... When we get around to doing that!

While there are some sales, there is not enough volume, or appreciation, to make this worthy of a place on the list this year.

Perhaps the best-known origin story in all of comic book history, and yet years went by before it was retold.

At least Batman #47 does it in style, with the first fully detailed origin of the Caped Crusader fleshing out Bruce Wayne's background.

This is a pretty scarce book. We've seen a couple in recent collections, but nothing nicer than the usual VG range. You may have to jump on whatever you can find. Prices are pretty buoyant when they do sell.
