Another massive 800-page collection of the Dark Knight's Golden Age adventures from some of the creative titans of the comic book industry! Dozens--and dozens--of stories from the late 1940s, in which the Dynamic Duo battles evildoers including multiple stories featuring Catwoman, Penguin, the Joker, and many others. Plus special Christmas stories. Collects Detective Comics #113-132, Batman #36-45 and the Batman stories from World's Finest Comics #23-32.

Besides the massive list of talent above, also contributing to these issues are artists George Roussos (a favorite of mine, though I also think Jerry Robinson was one of the best here), Win Mortimer, Howard Sherman, and yes, even Bob Kane. Plus writers Alvin Schwartz, William Woolfolk and Don Cameron. And Jim Mooney! It is worth noting that we have stories here by the famed sf writer Edmund Hamilton, whose Captain Future was king of the pulps, and who of course wrote many famed stories for All Star and the Justice Society.

Jack Burnley was a brilliant artist and here probably was only doing the occasional, but massively classic cover, for instance for the World's Finest issues. But his brother Ray Burnley is greatly overlooked--his excellent work on the early issues of Jimmy Olsen make these as well drawn as the work Curt Swan was doing over on Superman and Action Comics during the 1950s and early 60s.

And Gardner Fox, of course, was a mainstay at DC and his stories in the silver age for Adam Strange, The Flash and Green Lantern, are now classics.
