The stories that catapulted Batman to legendary status are collected here in a single, massive volume. The origin of the Dark Knight, as well as the debuts of Robin, Commissioner Gordon, Professor Hugo Strange, The Joker, Catwoman and more! Batman packing a .45 and more cool early work!
Here is The Batman, at the beginning a lone warrior of the night, with scarcely an origin. Watch as the stories grow and mature, as Bill Finger expands and creates wonderful new characters that continue today, and artists like Jerry Robinson come on board to create some of the most seminal covers and stories ever.
New introduction by long time DC writer Dennis O'Neil.
