SUPERMAN / BATMAN 80 Years Slipcase Set

Availability: In stock

Regular Price: $59.98

Sale Price $34.98

Closeout Price! Highly Recommended. By Jim Lee, Jim Chambers et al. Art by Joe Simon, Bob Kane et al. An amazing 27 complete stories. We really like these important, pivotal Batman tales, such as the first Two-Face (1942), the first Riddler (1948), Clayface in 1961, and Neal Adams' Man-Bat in 1970. But an additional treat is other important stars of Detective Comics over the years: Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster's Slam Bradley, Simon & Kirby's debut of The Boy Commandos in 1942, the Origin of Pow-Wow Smith--a beautifully-drawn western by Carmine Infantino in 1949, Manhunter by Archie Goodwin and Walt Simonson, and far more.
