Congrats, thats a great book. :golfclap:

Thx! It was not supposed to be among the handful of books I was meeting the guy to buy (he swore a week or so earlier he had a buyer for it) but I showed up for five other books and there it was as well.

My understanding is the book came out of an east coast collection. The owners name was D ick May if I recall correctly. It had quite a few Batmans in it. I don't know if there were other titles. I think the Batman 1 may have been bought 2nd hand. The later issues were in NM condition. I will post the 36 also from the collection later. Sadly I didn't believe the CBG ad on condition and didn't buy more. When I got the 36 and saw how nice it was I called to try and buy more but he had already sold them. I can't remember the dealers name.

This is the Batman 36 that came out of the same collection.  When I opened the package, I could barely believe the condition on the book.  One of my biggest regrets was not buying all the Batman's he had listed.

does this copy have the year on the cover? I just see a "K" under the Batman logo.... Ive seen some Batmans that have the year written very similarly on the cover, either just the year "1943" or like this "1943-44" in ink, often under the date and issue.

No date on it. I only saw the Batman 1 and 36 from the collection. If I remember correctly the dealer had  Batman's from the 20s to the 40s
