American popular culture has produced few heroic figures as famous and enduring as that of The Batman. The dark, mysterious hero who debuted in 1939’s Detective Comics #27 as the lone “Bat-Man” quickly grew into the legend of the Caped Crusader. After his landmark debut and origin story, the Dark Knight was given many seminal elements including his partner in crime-fighting, Robin, the Boy Wonder, and such adversaries as the Joker, the Penguin and Scarecrow. Here are those first amazing stories.

This begins with the 4th appearance of The Joker and features many more stories with him. Here is the first mention of Gotham City; the first Batmobile with the bat-head front; the death of Hugo Strange; the last story with Clayface. Includes the Batman stories from the third title to feature him, the very rare World's Best #1 which quickly became the extra-big, 96-page comic World's Finest, and here we have the first two issues of that title, which always starred Batman and Superman on every cover. They wouldn't team up for several more years, but here they are together on some iconic early covers.

This second volume of Batman: The Golden Age collects the Dark Knight Detective’s early adventures from Batman #4-7, Detective Comics #46-56, World’s Best Comics #1 and World’s Finest Comics #2-3. New cover by Michael Cho.
