HIGH GRADE BAT 254, A TOUGH HUNDRED PAGE ISSUE!

This super-bright clean comic-book is flat and tight and boasts phenomenal eye appeal.

THIS FEATURES A CLASSIC BATMAN VS MANBAT COVER WITH AN UNUSUAL 'BATMAN THROUGH THE DECADES THEME' FEATURING TALES FROM THE FORTIES THROUGH SEVENTIES.

TOUGH TO GET IN SUCH NICE SHAPE, NOT TO MENTION THE HEAVY GLOSS THAT THIS BEAUTY RETAINS!

 THESE SQUARE-BOUND GIANTS ARE ELUSIVE IN HIGH-GRADE, ESPECIALLY WITHOUT PAYING A HIGH PRICE FOR A CERTIFIED EXAMPLE WHICH IS FOREVER OUT OF REACH IN ITS TRENDY HOLDER.

BATMAN, THE DARK KNIGHT, HAS DEVELOPED INTO ONE OF THE TOP ICONS OF AMERICAN POP CULTURE, AND THESE HUNDRED-PAGE ISSUES FROM THE EARLY SEVENTIES ARE AMONG THE MOST BELOVED. 

STUNNING RED AND YELLOW LOGO, WITH AN AWESOME COVER SHOWING BATMAN FACING OFF AGAINST THE MONSTROUS MAN-BAT! 

THIS ALSO FEATURES MANY FULL-LENGTH ADVENTURE STORIES BY TOP ARTISTS!

This long running original series is one of the most influential of all, as it helped kick off the golden-age of comics when it gave this hero, The Batman, aka: the Dark Knight Detective, his very own title back in the forties, for the very first time.  The dark background of the cover provides great contrasts and is a treat to behold when it's unblemished by such pesky detractors as soiling or other obvious creases and spine-stresses. Batman and Robin the Boy Wonder are both household names throughout the globe, thanks in part to the movie seriels, all the different TV series', and of course the smash-hit big-budget films and DVD sales and all the toys and videogames and statues and animation and action-figures and clothing and the plethora of other licensed merchandise. These are top stars from pop culture and of course the hugely succesful films, which brought the love of these iconic heroes to still another generation of fans around the world in recent years...  It doesn't get much more "Blue Chip" than this!     

Each item is securely-boxed, with plenty of protective packaging material.

This incredible original first-print comic-book WILL find a new home, as the asking price is LOW and there is NO RESERVE! 

ALWAYS POPULAR, BUT INCREASINGLY RARE, UNRESTORED HIGH-GRADE SPECIMENS OF THIS OLD 50-CENTER ARE ONLY GETTING HOTTER!

This historic comic is a real find in unrestored VF or better shape, as most copies had production flaws such as printing creases or scuffs or distributor ink, while others were read and re-read, time and time again, and with the glossy dark cover even the tiniest flaws seem magnified.  However, this copy is spectacular, as it's lustrous and clean and there is no distracting major wear or obvious damage, and it has precise printing registration.  And the gloss is excellent, too!  It would be exceptional, but it has a tiny corner chip out of the lower right front cover.  This beauty boasts deep rich uniform colors and a flat clean appearance, devoid of common problems such as spine-splits and folds and stains, and the deep gloss is a bonus. 

We are now offering other nice vintage Batman and Detective comics, plus rare comic art; And we'll be offering hundreds of other collectable comics in the next few months.  Check out our ebay items regularly!

 A lot has happened with Batman in the past few decades since this gem came out, adding more allure to the fabled vintage issues such as this;  so I don't suggest waiting around until these crucial books have gone through the roof....  Decent specimens of this hot issue are always in demand, but are not always available in the market, in such attractive condition with incredible luster and deep colors like this! 

 This is an investment that you can show and display proudly. With demand that exceeds supply, premium prices can occur when an unrestored beauty such as this reaches the market.  

Great cover colors; And the gloss is phenomenal, which must be seen in person to be appreciated.  If you are a discriminating Dark Knight collector, serious giant-size comic investor, or just a devout silver-age DC collector and prefer unrestored books without significant flaws, then NOW is your brief window of opportunity.  It looks less appealing in the disappointing picture,  ~but in person the book looks spectacular and the super bright colors really leap out at you!  

 The conservative Overall Grade is VERY FINE; --it is hard to believe it's almost forty years old!

* GORGEOUS PEDIGREE-QUALITY SPECIMEN *

We are strict graders, prompt shippers & secure packagers, expect to be pleased.
