"A mesmerizing time capsule of coolness!” -Scoop

The Silver Age Caped Crusader comes to IDW's Library of American Comics! In partnership with DC Entertainment, the Eisner and Harvey Award-winning imprint gives the deluxe archival treatment to the classic 1960s Batman newspaper strip. The complete series, which ran from 1966 until 1972, has never been reprinted and will be collected in three definitive volumes. The strip debuted in May 1966 on the heels of the Batmania craze resulting from the hit television program. The series boasted stories by longtime editor Whitney Ellsworth and art by DC stalwarts Shelly Moldoff, Joe Giella, and Carmine Infantino.

The first volume, reprinting 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!

About the Author:

Frederick "Whitney" Ellsworth (November 27th, 1908 - September 8th, 1980) was a writer and editor for National Periodical Publications and DC Comics. He is recognized for his extensive contributions to the Silver Age era of super-hero comic strips as well as the creation of the character Congo Bill. Whitney also served in the capacity of writer and producer for several television projects including the 1954 television series, The Adventures of Superman.

From Booklist:

The smash success of the 1966 Batman television show launched a myriad of tie-ins, including a syndicated newspaper comic strip. Fans of the neurotically grim Dark Knight of today’s comic books and movies will hardly recognize the lighthearted hero of these adventures, which emulate the tongue-in-cheek camp style of the TV series. All the hallmarks of the show are replicated: garishly garbed villains such as the Joker, the Penguin, and Catwoman; Robin’s Holy . . . exclamations; the exaggerated sound effects; and even a prominent Hollywood guest star in the form of Jack Benny, who enlists the Dynamic Duo to recover his stolen Stradivarius. The artwork, by a variety of artists but always credited to Batman creator Bob Kane, is straightforward and nondescript, and a too-brief drawn sequence by the stylish Carmine Infantino is the volume’s visual high point. The Batman fad faded quickly—the show left the airwaves in 1968, but the strip limped along until the early ’70s. A pair of subsequent volumes will reprint the remainder of its run. --Gordon Flagg
