Click the above title to read more...


About the Book: In this second volume, produced in partnership with DC Entertainment, Batman's rare 1960s newspaper adventures continue. Will Batman and Robin survive the double dealings of Madame Zodiac, not to mention the redoubtable Blue Max? If so, can the Caped Crusader then survive being trapped on an island with an atomic time bomb beneath him? Can his friend Superman save him when the Man of Steel might not be able to save himself? Can Aquaman come to rescue them both? The answers to these questsions - and many more - are in this breathtaking Bat-Volume, reprinting all daily and Sunday strips from January 1, 1968 through May 31, 1969!


Our Take: There are very few parts of Batman's print legacy that aren't readily available to the public. The various runs of newspaper comic strips are finally collected in hardcover form for the hardcore fan. This great book from IDW gives us a second volume of the 1960s Silver Age comic strips in their original glory. These are strips that you literally couldn't have seen until now, unless you had saved the original newspapers that they were printed in. 

The strips are reprinted in their original format, with the Sunday editions in color and the dailies in black and white. The book features all kinds of adventures that you've never seen before, including all the characters we love like Batman, Robin, Alfred, Catwoman, Batgirl and more. The occasional other Justice League hero will make an appearance as well, like Aquaman and Superman. This book is a phenominal addition to the library of any Batman fan.
