The Caped Crusader at his best! Feb. 2 2007
By J. Belk - Published on
Format: Paperback
What's great about this book is the range of the stories. Some have a light tone reminicent of the "Batman" TV series of the sixties, (The Metamporpho team-up even MENTIONS the show) others are dark, pulpy mysteries, (the Neal Adams drawn Deadman team-ups are particularly good) No matter which interpretation of the Dark Knight you prefer, your bound to dig at least a few of these tales.

Nearly every DC Great of the silver age makes an appearance, from Green Arrow to Green Lantern, from the Metal Men to the Teen Titans,(one of Robin's few appearances in this particular book) Batman even teams with Sgt. Rock in World War II,(!) and does battle with Eclipso, a rare villain who headlined his own series. One conspicuous absince is Superman, I guess we'll just have to wait for a Showcase of "World's Finest"

Neal Adams to the rescue! July 25 2009
By Hwy61Joe - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The first 300 pages of this collection are absolutely painful to read. Groan-inducing dialog, uninteresting villains and boring stories that drag on for 23 pages each. I almost gave up. Then about 300 pages in, Neal Adams takes over as the artist and everything changes. Comics are a visual medium and this collection proves the importance and influence a great artist can have. The stories drawn by Adams are 100% more enjoyable and completely turned my opinion around about this collection.
A Truly Mixed Bag March 26 2014

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The Neal Adams/Denny O'Neil stories in the last third of the book are very good. As other reviewers have said, however, the first two-thirds of this book are awful. I have read many stories written by Bob Haney and he is one of the worst writers of this era in my opinion. He was trying to be hip and Marvel-like, and- in trying WAY too hard- it falls flatter than an undercooked souffle. This is really a two-star book, but I love the Showcase books so much that it's worth an extra star.
Fun book! Feb. 9 2014
By Neil A. Hansen - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you like silver age comics or even appreciate early Neal Adams art, this comic is for you. The stories start out strange, but then get a little tighter as the Neal Adams begins, and this starts becoming the Bob Haney style that has followed in all subsequent Brave & Bold editions.
So many great team ups Sept. 30 2013

But it's the Neal Adams issues where are the high point of the collection. Nice to see Bats team up with such a wide array of heroes.
