    Well worth the price!

    This collection includes the very first Batman comic stories in chronological order. Contrary to what the publisher reviews say, this actually includes Detective Comics 27-38, not just 37. Although later Chronicles collections may just be suitable for collectors or completists, this is a must-have for any Batman fan. Unlike the Archive collections (which are astoundingly expensive) or the Showcase Presents series (which are only in black and white), these collections manage to balance affordability with attention to detail. These look great in color. Granted, Bob Kane was not the greatest artist, but that doesn't detract from the stories. Furthermore, you get the first appearances of Batman (naturally), Commissioner Gordon, Robin, Hugo Strange, The Joker, and Catwoman (herein called 'The Cat'). The Joker is just as homicidal as ever, and the story that introduces Catwoman is wonderful (and even funny). Also, there is some good art thrown in (like the cover to Detective Comics #31 very gothic). More than just a collection of original stories, some of these stories are actually entertaining. Pick this up as a collectible and as a good read in its own right.

    For the Lover of Classic Batman

    Although not quite yet the coarse individual we know today, this 40's Batman definitely offers pop culture nostalgia for early comic book lover. For anyone who loves Batman for Batman this is a must-have.
