In a memorable episode of “The Simpsons,” Bart and his friends feud over a jointly owned copy of the fictional comic book Radioactive Person #1. Their inability to share it leads to until it was destroyed.
Proposal to share ownership of a rare Batman comic book will go more smoothly.
Rally, an online service for buying a collection, announced on Friday that it will be selling stock of Batman #1, first published in 1940 and a pivotal chapter in comic book history.
“Comics are a huge part of that,” said Rob Petrozzo, who founded Rally with Chris Bruno and Max Niederste-Ostholt. “We’re always looking for the rare examples, the first appearances, the most important moments in every franchise.”
Batman #1’s initial public offering will go live in mid-March. The company will offer 180,000 shares at $10 each. The Rally app will provide investors with a view of the front and back covers of the comic book, sealed in a clear archive. For those wanting a close-up and personal look, the Batman comic book series will be on display this year at Rally’s new headquarters in Lower Manhattan.
This #1 Batman replica is rated 8/10 in condition. Batman #1 includes the first appearance of the Joker and Catwoman (or Cat, as she was then called) as well as an iconic cover of Batman and Robin swinging through the sky.
A $1.8 million valuation for a comic book may seem like a fantasy to a beginner, but the value of rare and notable comic books has skyrocketed in recent years. Last month, a copy of Action Comic #1 of 1938, which featured Superman’s debut, sold on Heritage Auctions for 3.18 million dollars.
