Among those appearing in that first issue were

* Bruce Nelson - last Golden Age appearance in Detective Comics #36, February 1940


* Buck Marshall, Range Detective - last Golden Age appearance in Detective Comics #36, February 1940


* Cosmo, the Phantom of Disguise - last Golden Age appearance in Detective Comics #37, March 1940


* Bart Regan, Spy - last Golden Age appearance in Detective Comics #83, January 1944


* Speed Saunders - last Golden Age appearance in Detective Comics #58, December 1941

and

* Slam Bradley - last Golden Age appearance in Detective Comics #152, October 1949

Later on, guys like the Crimson Avenger, Batman, and others would appear.

Erm, isn't it more usual to celebrate 75th anniversaries rather than 77ths?

Lovely art, though...

So I guess "Happy 81st Anniversary!" wouldn't go over too well, either?

Next year will be the 80th Anniversary for the first appearance of Batman in Detective Comics!

I don't think 81 is really considered to be a significant number.

But it is 9². Wink

And is "69" a significant number?

I think it kind of has to be multiples of ten, really.
