- Full Description
Dozens of cool stories, collected chronologically, from almost two years during and just after the war. With Catwoman, the Penguin, the Joker, Two-Face and many more. Features include a classic Burnley Christmas cover on Batman #27 plus a Penguin appearance; Batman #32 features the origin of Robin retold; #35 features a Catwoman story in new costume, without her cat's head mask. In Detective Comics we find two Joker stories, a Penguin cover feature and story, and the first Bat-Signal story.
In World's Finest we get a Joker story and those wonderful Jack Burnley covers of Superman, Robin and Batman doing fun stuff, from skiiing together to playing backetball!
And that's not to say everything else here isn't lots of fun also, but these are the Overstreet highlights for the three titles. Great collection of fun stories from very prime years for this strip, as talented creators took over more and more work from Bob Kane and gave Batman more sparkling artwork, better stories, and superlative cover art.
Three-page Foreword by Michael Eury, former DC editor and "Inside DC" columnist, and editor-in-chief of Back Issue magazine.
Additional creators include Don Cameron, Norman Fallon, Charles Paris, Win Mortimer, George Roussos, Jack Schiff, Alvin Schwartz and Mort Weisinger. Short bios of each one of these and several others re included.
