When Bob Kane’s seminal Batman first reached newspapers during World War II, only a small group of papers published it. So the early Batman and Robin comic strips have remained among the most elusive works in comics’ history. Not anymore: these rare Sunday color pages are now reprinted in a generously sized format worthy of their importance. The many fans of the Caped Crusader will thrill to see Batman and the Boy Wonder do battle once again with both common thugs and outrageous villains in order to save Gotham City from plot after evil plot. Making their nefarious way across these illustrated panels are some of the Caped Crusader’s most indelible adversaries, including the Joker, Catwoman, Penguin, and Two-Face. In addition to behind-the-scenes information and rare promotional materials, this deluxe edition collects the first four years of the classic Batman and Robin newspaper comics exactly as written and illustrated by the strip’s most famous writers and artists. Among the classic stories are: “The Penguin’s Crime-Thunderstorms,” “Catwoman’s Grasshopper Chase,” and “Half Man—Half Monster.”Batman and all related characters and elements are trademarks of DC Comics (C) 2006.
