One of the medium's most legendary innovators, writer and editor Len Wein has stamped his unique style on countless comic book characters--but one of the hottest streaks of his career was his acclaimed run on the Batman family of titles in the 1970s and early 1980s. Here for the first time are all his finely crafted page-turners, 600 pages of work also featuring Marshall Rogers, Tom Mandrake and Walt Simonson.
These tales from the 1970s are written by Len Wein, co-creator of Swamp Thing and Wolverine and writer of Before Watchmen: Ozymandias. In this new hardcover, Batman battles the villainy of The Joker, The Riddler, Catwoman, Mr. Freeze, Ra's al Ghul and many others. The Neal Adams stories here (one page is shown here) are among his finest on the Dark Knight.
