Egad! Update

1939 Batman Detective Comics No. 27 sells for record $1 million at auction - "Well, that record didn't last long.

Just three days after a Superman book became the first comic to sell for $1 million, a Batman comic book sold Thursday at auction for about $75,000 more.

Heritage Auction Galleries in Dallas reports that a rare copy of Detective Comics No. 27 from 1939 -- in which 'The Batman' made his debut -- sold for a record-setting $1,075,500."

I could have had one for $300 in 1969. No sucker, me. I passed.

$300 not that insignificant a sum in 1969, if not quite inflated to a mil plus now.

Bill waits for his WHIZ COMICS #2 to sell before treating everyone to Fuddruckers.
