When Batman first reached newspapers during World War II, only a small group of papers published it so the early Batman and Robin comics have remained among the most elusive works. These rare Sunday color pages are now reprinted in a generously sized format worthy of their importance. Caped Crusader fans will thrill to see Batman and Robin do battle with both common thugs and outrageous villains in order to save Gotham City. 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. Dust jacket included.
