Description: Author: DC Comics
This book is really good if you are interested in watching the development of the Batman since his origin in 1939. The almost "film noir" style of the 1930's/ early 40's Batman is actually really cool.
It is actually the fifties and sixties of Batman that are a little campy and cliched, and while I still like the character and the stories of that era, the Batman of the late 70's and 80's is the Batman I grew up with and loved.
This book is a good anthology of a character whose origin and inner psychology have fluctuated a great deal since his first appearance.
Worth the price if you buy a used copy.
