Batman #1 up for Auction

As many of you already know, earlier this year, Action #1 (the first Superman) sold at auction for a cool million, a few weeks later, Detective #27 (the first Batman appearance) was gobbled up for a mil-five. Now we hear that Batman #1 is up for sale, and is expected to net over $40,000!

  A longtime Alaska comic book buff is selling one of the gems in his vast collection, a rare copy of Batman No. 1 published 70 years ago.
  Mike Wheat of Fairbanks has put the 1940 comic book on the auction block through Dallas-based Heritage Auction Galleries, where it's expected to fetch more than $40,000. Online bids already have climbed to $35,000 for the book, believed to be one of fewer than 300 still in existence.
  Online bids will compete with a live auction set for Thursday.
 Personally, we’re still awaiting news on how much Amazing Fantasy #15 (a comic we own), which was the first appearance of Spider-Man is going for these days.

Just over $40,000? I bet it will net $600,000, at least
