*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 played 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 his Silver Age return, Batman #171, is a FN+ copy with a pence price overstamp. Clean and pristine interiors, cover scene largely unblemished, but with only the lightest corner blunting and a few small breaks in the spine colour precluding a higher grade. On sale at £300.
