Renowned for its Eisner and Harvey Award-winning archival work, IDW’s The Library of American Comics have continued its collaboration with DC Entertainment by collecting the Batman’s Silver Age newspaper strips in a matching format to the Silver Age Superman series!
Hot on the heels of the successful hit Batman television show starring Adam West and Burt Ward that resulted in what can only be described as “Batmania,” the Batman newspaper strips debuted in 1966. Written by longtime Batman editor Whitney Ellsworth, with art by DC Comics giants Shelly Moldoff, Joe Giella, and Carmine Infantino, the newspaper strip was a huge success.
This first volume, reprints all B&W dailies and color Sundays from 1966 and 1967, features an all-star list of Batman and Robin characters, including Catwoman, the Penguin, the Joker, Poison Ivy, and Batgirl!
The gorgeous 11 x 8.5″ hardcover designed and edited by Dean Mullaney features a dust jacket cover by Pete Poplaski and is 256 pages, including an introduction by Joe Desris.
Batman: The Silver Age Newspaper Comics Volume 1 (1966-1967) is available to order HERE for $50.
