Detective Comics

Aside from the appearance of proto-superhero The Crimson Avenger (he wore a mask), Detective Comics, a very early title for National/DC premiering in 1937, was just that - a book that featured various gritty-detective stories.

This was all turned upside down with issue #27, when, following closely on the heels of surprise success Superman, came the introduction of DC's second iconic character : THE BATMAN!

 Bob Kane's creation was like no other before it, with its protagonist having a complicated and tragic back story - territory not really seen in comics before that. Millionaire Bruce Wayne was a dark, brooding, figure who had witnessed the murder of his parents as a young boy. Obsessed with finding a way to serve justice, he assumed the identity of The Batman, and generally went after his criminal prey during the night...

People loved it, and it quickly became a best-seller. Detective, however never really let go of it's more conventional detective co-features, but did, with time, start featuring supporting stories of The Boy Commandos and the criminally underrated hero Air Wave.

As the 40's progressed, the Batman character was significantly watered-down, taking on an often slightly humorous tone.

The Golden-Age issues are little treasures, fetching high prices on the vintage comics market.

If ANY grade over an 8.5 ever hits the open market it will go pretty much for whatever is asked. A premium garde book like a NM/MT 9.8 or even a NM+ 9.6 will fetch hundreds of thousands of dollars. Even a PR 0.5 CGC no grade AND coverless went for $4,000 in 2018. The value of this book simply can not be over estimated.

What's Detective Comics #29 worth in 2021?

This issue is even more valuable than its predecessor. The cover appearance trumps his actual appearance in the book. There are so few registered copies (34 to be exact!) that if the highest graded copy, a NM+ 9.6, were to find its way to auction it would probably net in the million dollar range. In 2015 a VF- 7.5 brought nearly $91,000. Almost a year later a VG/FN 5.0 sold for $95,000. The rate of increase for these super rare Golden Age keys in heady. In 2019 a CGC no grade and coverless book brought almost $6,000 and a couple of years earlier a SINGLE page from the book brought $1,000. A lot of informed collectors and dealers alike believe that a high grade Detective Comics #27, Batman's first appearance, will eventually over take the Action Comics #1 in value. All of these early Detective and Batman issues will explode in value to even greater heights of value.

Why is this comic book valuable?

Detective Comics #29 is just the third appearance of the Batman and only the second time he was featured on the cover. Once more, as with all the very early Detective Books, rarity is a major factor along with the Batman's presence.

What's Detective Comics #31 worth in 2021?

This iconic issue has proven rock solid through the years. If you have a Detective Comics #31 you can definitely get some cash for it in any condition. The main reason for that is the book is ridiculously rare. Out of 50 known unrestored copies registered with the CGC Census only 13 are over VG 4.0. Couple with that the fact there are no known copies over 8.0 VF. It is difficult to imagine what a high grade copy of this book might bring. The chance to buy such a copy would prove to be so rare it could cause the book to sell for $500,000 or $1,250,000 - no one could possibly predict it. As it stands the highest graded copy that has ever sold is a FN 6.0 that sold in 2013 for $65,000 and then again in 2017 for $175,000! To cement the facts about how rare and desired this comic is let's look at a copy in "fair", yes a FR 1.0. Initially sold for the first time ever in 2014 that book brought a little more than $19,000. Just three years later it would bring $44,000. This is one comic book that is literally just "money in the bank" if you have one.

Why is this comic book valuable?

Detective Comics #31 features the first Batplane and first batarang but that isn't the reason for it's ever surging value. It's the "Batman over Castle" cover art by Batman creator, Bob Kane and the ultra rareness of the book in any grade over VG 4.0. Perhaps Kane's most iconic work this cover has seen more homages to it than Amazing Spider-man #300. From Hellboy to Darkwing Duck but none more famous than from DC's sister book, Batman #227, published in 1970, drawn by legendary Caped Crusader artist Neal Adams. One thing is for sure, Detective Comics #31 has been established as a collecting icon that isn't going to fade away!

The sales of these books are so rare because there just aren't any real numbers out there. less than 50 copies unrestored in the world! Even the lowest grades fetch thousands of dollars. In March of 2019 a G/VG 3.0 brought 4x what it brought in 2004, going from $900 to $4,000. Safe to say these early Batman appearances are pretty much a "sure thing" if you can get one.

Why is this comic book valuable?

Batman is packing heat! That's right, this is Detective Comics #32, the first time Batman uses a gun and the first time a costumed super hero used a gun in comic books. With these early Batman appearances there will always be a "first" something or other. At this point it's rarity and the newness of the character dictating prices. But you CAN still see that there are varying degrees of importance during this era. Looking at the value of the issue before this is a good way to help understand that all early issues are not created equal. Out of 48 unrestored issues registered with CGC Census only 10 are over VG/FN 5.0. Of those 10 only 2 are over a VF- 7.5. Rare indeed.

Why is this comic book valuable?

Detective Comics #36 is the first appearance of one of the Batman's oldest enemies, Dr. Hugo Strange. Famous for being one of the first if not the first villain to discover the Dark Knight's true identity. A lesser known fact is this issue introduced the fins on Batman's gloves. Taken from a character from the pulp magazines of the day, Bill Finger showed the Black Bat to Bob Kane who loved the fins and so they were incorporated into the costume and the rest, as they say, is history.

In 2013, the peak price ever paid for a copy was $511 (for an 8.5 grade). The lowest price on record was $99 for a 1.8 copy in 2019. Overall, a 6.0 copy is worth around $300 today. That gives is a comparable median value to other issues, but the peak is remarkably low.

Why is this comic book valuable?

Part of the reason for the low peak value is that neither of the 9.0 or higher graded copies have ever logged trades on the CGC Census.

If you were a comic fan in 1949, you could have seen Detective Comics #146 release that April. If you got into the game a little later, you might like to know that the most expensive sale of issue #146 occured in 2019. That price was paid for a 7.5-graded copy. Conversely, a 4.0 copy sold the same year for $172. With that variability, it’s hard to put a clear price on a 6.0 copy today, but it’s likely between $500 and $2000. That’s a pretty big range.

Why is this comic book valuable?

Issue #146 is fairly interesting. There are only 18 copies, and the highest grade for any of them is 7.5. That rarity combined with the rapid increase in value that occurred around 2018 and 2019 makes even middle-grade copies of the issue worth a considerable amount.

If it holds to trends seen in its peer issues, a 6.0 could be worth anywhere from $500 to $2000 today.

What's Detective Comics #300 worth in 2021?

There are three copies of this issue graded at NM 9.4, with a top sale price of $4,501 in 2018. One year later in 2019, it dropped to $2,700. This was closer to the $2,650 price in 2017, suggesting the high sale price in 2018 is an outlier in the current market. There's a single NM+ 9.6 at the high end with no sales history available. The rest of the market was generally flat, though VF/NM 9.0 increased from $130 in 2005 to today's value around $600.

What's Detective Comics #400 worth in 2021?

There are eight copies of this book at NM/MT 9.8, and the market for them has not been kind. The top sale price was $13,534 in 2009, falling down to the lowest sale of $2,225 in 2013. It's likely to see a nice rebound in the current market and could be an excellent buy-low opportunity, but that massive 2009 price looks to be an outlier. Other grades provided far more stability: VF+ 8.5 steadily increased from $75 in 2003 to today's value around $500 for a return over 500%!
