Dollar Bin Digging 17

Detective Comics #783

This had caught some heat a while back when Nyssa Al Ghul was on Arrow on the CW, as this is her 1st appearance. Here she went by Nyssa Raatko.

It’s gone largely forgotten lately, but her character could rise again to prominence if a new Bat writer decides to bring Ra’s Al Ghul and his offspring back to the forefront. Or if her character finds her way into a DC Universe movie. I can see her as a good villain for a future Birds of Prey or Batgirl film.

Batman Death and the Maidens is a 9 part series that can also be found in the dollar bins and it is a great story worth picking up, spotlighting Nyssa’s origin.

Superboy #9

Another book that had some heat a while back due to a TV appearance. This one was on the CW’s Flash and this is the 1st full appearance of King Shark.

Had he remained in the Suicide Squad lineup instead of Killer Croc, this book would most definitely have more value. As it stands, a 90’s leather cuffed half man, half shark just doesn’t have a huge demand.

But I still say this is worth grabbing. I’ve been scouring dollar bins for it for a while looking for this, but I just found one for $1.50 at a 50% New Year’s day sale. Though I would absolutely still grab this if I found it in a bin for a buck. Worth a flier. **Editor's note: Keep an eye out for a DC Universe Logo UPC variant on this one too**
