In the year 1938, DC essentially founded the comic book super-hero genre with the introduction of Superman. The following year this fruitful publisher multiplied its sales by rolling out The Batman. Eager to please fans and cash in on the tremendous popularity of these genre defining heroes, DC embarked on a continuing string of spin-off issues featuring "The Man of Steel", "The Dark Knight" and a vast cast of allies, sidekicks and villainous evil-doers. One of the more important spin-offs was the "World's Finest" series. Beginning in the Summer of 1941, this title split space between DC's two most famous characters, who eventually began teaming up in the 1954 issue #71. Long before the industry shattering team-up of these caped icons, the offered World's Finest issue #11 hit the newsstands in 1942. A very respectable copy for so early in the Gold Age, this handsome example has recently earned a (4.5) designation from leading certification service CGC. In addition to Superman and Batman, this issue's classic cover also features sidekick Robin, with the three "supes" doing their part for the war effort by tending their "Victory Garden." Label notations include "Off-White to White Pages, Bill Finger and Jerry Siegel story, Jack Burnely and Jerry Robinson cover."
