Synopsis: 1st Printing!

From Publishers Weekly: Although they won't gain a critical assessment of the superhero genre, Batman fans will enjoy this detailed chronicle of the classic comic book, one of the few published continuously since its launch in the "golden age of comics." Created by Bob Kane in 1939 to capitalize on the then-new superheroecho ok?/yes/pk craze, Batman and his sidekick, Robin the Boy Wonder, have undergone many concept changes and redesigns. The author details the Batman story lines from the strip's pulp fiction beginnings through its do-good "scoutmaster" period in the 1940s; its preoccupation with alien invaders and science fiction themes in the '50s; the campy, lighthearted approach of the '60s, influenced by the hit TV show; a modernization of Batman's crime-fighting equipment in the '70s; and in the '80s, Frank Miller's enormously successful Dark Knight reinterpretation, which essentially returned to the characters' pulp roots and transformed Batman into a brooding--and savage--urban vigilante. The text by copyediting: use of both names correct?pk/i'd say yes/lk Cotta Vaz, a martial arts instructor and freelance journalist, is accompanied by reproductions of the artwork by Bob Kane and later artists like Dick Sprang.
