Why Detective Comics 233 is a Hot Comic

MARKET REPORT 2019: BARELY HOT, BUT WORTH INVESTING IN

If there were a big supply of this scarce early Silver Age book, then they would sell like hot cakes.

As it is, the rare opportunities that come along see eager buyers taking whatever's on offer.

IF YOU BOUGHT MY RECOMMENDED GRADE LAST YEAR:

Here's the bottom line.

  • CGC 4.0 2018 $1,700
  • LAST SALE $1,700
  • PERCENT CHANGE NONE

Could you see Bat-Woman in a movie or TV series? (Not counting Adam West and Burt Ward's TV series, I mean.)

Probably not. But you never know in this day and age.

This is definitely a long-term hold kind of book, and a pretty cool cover if you like collecting classic covers. Well worth buying, IF you can find one.

Recent sales:

MARKET REPORT 2018: FEW SALES, BUT PRICES UP UP UP

Virtually every sale in the past year has been positive -- but there just is such a low supply of these books.

Don't hesitate. There won't be many opportunities to grab a copy of this book.

See also Batman #139 (Betty Kane as Bat-Girl) and Detective Comics #359 (Barbara Gordon as Bat-Girl).

  • CGC 7.5 $7,700
  • CGC 5.5 $2,500
  • CGC 5.0 $2,900 (!!)
  • CGC 4.0 $1,700
  • CGC 3.0 $880
  • CGC 1.5 $735

MARKET REPORT 2017: NEW TO THE LIST!

Tek #233 is a classic cover, and with the renewed interest in female heroes and villains, it's high time Batwoman made it to the 100 Hot Comics list.

A little over 100 in the CGC census means you will need to strike when a copy comes along. There simply isn't the supply to be too choosy.

  • CGC 7.5 $6,200
  • CGC 5.0 $2,940
  • CGC 4.0 $1,200
  • CGC 3.0 $1,200
