This pure silver foil commemorates the first appearance of Batman from May 1939 - making it one of the most valuable and sought-after comic books of all time, second only to Action Comics #1.
Detective Comics #27, from May 1939, marked the first appearance of the World's Greatest Detective, Batman. The character's recognition factor makes this copy an item with exceptionally broad appeal.
Released at a time where Superman was the only other super hero on the stands, it is no wonder that the striking cover by artist, Bob Kane, made a strong impact and has taken its place as one of the most famous comic book covers in history. Due to its significance, it is widely considered to be one of the most valuable comic books of all time. In fact, in February 2010, a 'Very Fine' copy, which cost 10c in 1939, was sold at auction for US $1,075,500.
This spectacular foil is licensed by DC Comics. It features a replica of the thrilling Detective Comics #27 cover and incorporates both colour and engraving.
This 35g fine silver collectible is presented in a clever acrylic holder, designed to frame the foil and allow for easy display. Packaged inside a complementary themed carrier, this is a unique collectible for any DC Comics, super hero or Batman fan.
