*DC: One of the definitive Batman covers of the new look this week, with Batman #169 and the Penguin in his second Silver Age appearance. Beautifully rendered by Carmine Infantino, the Dynamic Duo watch on as the Master of Fowl Play jets off from a rooftop on his jet-propelled umbrella, against a backdrop sky of the richest, most lush shade of purple that only DC’s colourists could produce. A classic for fans of the contemporary TV series. This is a cover that really needs to be unspoilt, as it is here on this lovely copy, glossy, tight and flat with excellent staples and page quality, the most minor edge wear (except for some very narrow creasing at the right edge) and a tiny chip out of the bottom right corner. For perfectionists, we also have an even nicer copy listed in our catalogue.
