*DC: Despite having made only two appearances in the Golden Age before falling into comic-book limbo, the Riddler was one of a handful of foes selected to feature in the 1960s Batman TV show (memorably incarnated by Frank Gorshin), and as a consequence he was brought back into the comics world, beginning with Batman #171, only his third ever appearance! Now prominently featured (played by Cory Michael Smith) in the hugely successful Gotham TV series, Riddler’s stock continues to rise. This edition of Batman # 171, his Silver Age return and third ever appearance, is a GD copy with a pence price overstamp. Clean unblemished interiors, cover scene largely unblemished, but three small patches of ‘pallor’ at the edges, where the background colour has faded slightly. Nevertheless, sound and strong, firm staples; an attractive copy of a key issue, on sale at £100.
