Joker comics have been around since the late 1930s, when the Batman's most infamous enemy first appeared.
If you have vintage comic books featuring The Joker, then this article will tell you what they are worth.
Alternatively, you can contact us for a free valuation of your old Batman and Detective comics.
The good news is, if you have a copy of the comic featuring the first appearance of The Joker, then it's the legendary Batman #1.
The bad news is, that's a rare comic book, and the chances of you having it in an old collection are pretty slim.
No matter what condition your Batman #1 is, if it's complete, then it's worth at least $20,000!

Another vintage Joker comics landmark is Detective Comics #40. Here is the first appearance of the Joker on a comic book cover.
Admittedly, it's a pretty small image of The Joker. He's visible next to Batman, while Robin hanging from a flagpole is the cover's central image.
Even a pretty beaten-up, but complete, copy of this landmark Joker appearance is worth $1,000.
