- Full Description
Introduction by Dick Sprang! Dozens and dozens of stories from the early 1940s with very early appearances by the Penguin, the Joker, Two-Face and many other villains who would become regulars. Even some wartime Nazi stories. This is vintage Batman, the stories that made him one of the most-loved comic book characters of the 1940s. For many readers, more than Superman, since he had only wits and his few gadgets to fight crime with--no super powers.
Wonderful iconic covers, powerful stories of brooding battles in darkest night.
Batman took some time to come into his own. The era covered by this collection may well be the finest run of stories of his Golden Age incarnation. While Bob Kane and Bill Finger got the Dark Knight started, here they brought on board both new artists and a new writer who made the stories even better. Gardner Fox, who was also writing fine stories for The Flash and the legendary Justice Society in All Star Comics is doing fine work here.
And my favorite Golden Age Batman artists, Jerry Robinson, Jack Burnley and the unmatached Dick Sprang are here in abundance, honing their skills on one of the most popular characters of the entire Golden Age. Good stuff!!!
