About this deal

All in all this book is worth every penny, and I look forward to sharing it with future generations.

In other Batman, Superman, and Legion of Super-Heroes stories, Hamilton introduced such memorable characters as Batwoman, the Composite Superman, Element Lad, and Dream Girl.

But pretty soon, the Adam West TV show came along, and while it borrowed the 'New Look', the stories themselves were based on the campy tone of the 50's and early 60's stories, without the sci-fi craziness of course. These 1956-1958 Batman and Detective Comics stories came just a little before I started reading DC comics, but give the real flavour of the Batman and Robin et al.

It would be more accurate to refer to them as 'prototypes' for the characters, and for the genre as a whole. That is where the Comics Code Authority step in, Street level/gritty Batman is kind of overrated as stated earlier. The Caped Crusader is known for protecting the streets of Gotham from the villains who wish to cause harm. The LEGO Batman Movie (2017), a spirited comedic romp told with computer-generated LEGO bricks, was much more warmly received. That's a very narrow view of "Golden Age" Batman that really only resembled maybe his first year of comic book stories in Detective Comics, and even then he didn't normally use a gun to kill living, normal human beings.Like I said they had time Travel since the mid 40s, and Brane Taylor (the Batman from the year 3051) also appeared the frist time in 1951.
