Random House, Inc. American popular culture has produced few heroic figures as famous and enduring as that of the Batman. The dark, mysterious hero who debuted in 1939's DETECTIVE COMICS #27 as the lone "Bat-man" quickly grew into the legend of the Caped Crusader. After his landmark debut and origin story, the Dark Knight was given many seminal elements, including his partner in crime-fighting Robin, the Boy Wonder, and such adversaries as the Joker, Two-Face and the Scarecrow.
This fourth volume of BATMAN: THE GOLDEN AGE collects the Dark Knight Detective's adventures from BATMAN #12-15, DETECTIVE COMICS #66-74 and WORLD'S FINEST COMICS #7-9.
Baker & Taylor Collects some of the earliest Batman stories, including when he faces off against such villains as the Joker, Penguin, and Two-Face.
