The Golden Age of Comics spans the years between 1938 and 1956, during which time comic books were first published and became overwhelmingly popular with readers. Many of today’s most popular superheroes were created during the Golden Age.
Batman No. 27, published in 1939, is notable for its first appearance of Batman. A “fine/very fine 7.0” graded copy of the issue has sold for $1.5 million in another auction from Heritage Auctions.
