You may have heard that Detective Comics #27, with its first appearance by Batman, brought in $1,075,500 at auction. It brought in $75,000 more than the first Superman, which brought in a cool million last week.
To put it into a bit of perspective, Detective Comics #27 has 66 pages, only six of which are devoted to Batman.
That means this page I’m about to show you:
is worth $179,250. Reminder: that’s $179,250 PER PAGE.
Here’s some other things you can get for $179,250:
- a waterfront condo in Hallandale, Florida
- a 1966 replica Batmobile (with $14,000 to spare … for gas)
- 89,625 copies of Batman on DVD
- 838 Jack Nicholson as Joker autographs
In other words … a freaking lot. And really, is it all that much?
Now, it’s your turn: insert Robin Holy (something) Batman exclamation below.
