Even before the start of the live auction on Thursday, more than two dozen bidders had pushed the price up since mid-December. On Wednesday, the bid shot up to just under $ 1.9 million (including buyer’s premium).
This far surpassed the previous Batman record holder. In November, Heritage auctioned the 1939 “Detective Comics # 27” issue with the first appearance of the iconic Batman figure for $ 1.5 million.
On the cover of the now auctioned comic strip “Batman # 1”, Batman and his young companion Robin fly against a yellow background and the red skyline of Gotham City. The characters Joker, Hugo Strange and Catwoman also appear in the booklet. The auction house announced that the magazine was in almost perfect condition. A collector bought it in 1979 for $ 3,000 in Houston, Texas. The original booklet cost ten cents in 1940.
