*DC: Our Batmania Max event continues this week with a 1950’s key issue of Detective Comics. The Caped Crusader and the Boy Wonder had their cozy world rocked by a curvaceous copycat who weaponised stereotypically female trappings – Tear-Gas Perfume, Expanding Hair-Net Traps – and, possessing skill and daring equal to Batman himself, eclipsed the Gotham Guardians’ style, saving their lives on several occasions! Kathy Kane, circus stuntwoman turned heiress and socialite, became a regular character in the Batman titles for several years before being supplanted by the Barbara Gordon Batgirl, but following her early 20th-Century revival, she’s once again a major player in the DC Universe, soon to be the star, once more, of her own ongoing series! This was her first appearance, in Detective Comics #233, and although the cover is virtually detached and there are considerable corner cover creases, the cover scene is unimpaired, and the interior pages clean and sound. We have graded it FA+, and it’s available for £200.
