Overview

For sixty years, he has been one of the most popular characters in American pop culture. Around the world, fans continue to revel in the adventures of the Dark Knight. He is the Batman, a costumed detective who wages a never-ending war on crime from the shadowy spires and alleyways of Gotham City.

The creation of Bob Kane, with assistance from such comics luminaries as Bill Finger and Jerry Robinson, the Batman is a character as distinctive today as he was when he first appeared in Detective Comics #27 in 1939. By day, millionaire Bruce Wayne appears to his fellow Gothamites a foppish playboy, who lives a carefree existence in stately Wayne Manor. By night, however, he spreads fear throughout the Gotham underworld as part of a personal crusade to avenge the murder of his parents.

The Dark Knight Archives (and its sister collection, Batman Archives) reprints the earliest adventures of the Darknight Detective. In volume three, the Batman and his trusty sidekick Robin battle the likes of the Joker, Catwoman and the Penguin. These tales and others, collected from Batman #9-12, serve as a fascinating insight into the nascence of one of comicdom's greatest legends. Villains beware! The Dark Knight is here!
