Artist Bob Kane (born Robert Kahn; October 24, 1915 – November 3, 1998)

NEW YORK (AP) – Batman creator Bob Kane’s own copies of the Caped
Crusader’s earliest appearances are going up for auction. The comics
come from the collection of Hollywood screenwriter Bob Underwood.

ComicConnect is selling Kane’s file copies of Detective Comics Nos. 27
through 45 and Batman Nos. 1 through 3. The auction house declined to
put an estimate on their value, saying such items rarely come up for sale.

The sale also has a nearly mint copy of the first Incredible Hulk comic book,
a 1962 issue that is one of four copies known to exist. It could bring as much
as $300,000.

There is also a 1942 Archie comic book. Archie No. 1 marked the first time
the red-headed character appeared in his own magazine. Its pre-sale price 
estimate is $150,000.

The five-session auction begins Monday Aug 3 and runs through Aug. 29.
