First appearing as three separate trade paperbacks these books were then combined to form this very low printing deluxe hardcover collection. The Batman newspaper strips themselves were considered the rarest Batman comics ever as they were never reprinted before prior to having been collected in the trade paperback or hardbound editions. Due to the wartime paper restrictions during World War II, the strip was sparsely circulated in the pages of newspapers across America. By only a few dailies and were not readily available to a vast national audience. Subsequently, this rarely seen work of the first four years of the classic Batman strips is of particular historical and artistic significance to Batman fans and comics enthusiasts alike.Now, Bob Kane's Batman, one of the most enduring and beloved comic book characters in comic book history, is presented in an extravagant, generously-sized collection of the first four years of the classic Batman strips, exactly as written and illustrated by the Caped Crusader's most famous writers and artists. These shadowy black-and-white newspaper strip dailies by Bob Kane, Bill Finger, Charles Paris and others showcase Batmans earliest incarnation, before he became an internationally beloved TV and movie icon. Also includes an early appearance of Batmans arch-nemesis, the Joker. Batman and the Boy Wonder as they once again do battle with both common thugs and outrageous villains in order to save Gotham City from plot after evil plot. This deluxe collection is A Must Have for every Batman Fan.
