“B” Is For …
… Batman! (1940)
I actually think that Batman has been better in Detective Comics (to say nothing of The Dark Knight Returns) than he has been in his own book, but clearly, “B” is for Batman.
One of the fascinations of this book is that it has something for everyone, depending the era you pick. The Golden Age stories stand on their own, but if I had to pick the peak it would likely be the O’Neil/Adams era. I have an affection for Batman’s “Grey Knight” period, and of course the Silver Age stories have their own goofy charm. The Englehart/Rogers stuff is ace, too.
