HASH(0xb59334e4) out of 5 stars DC archives are an endangered species... Jan. 26 2011
By Jim Davis - Published on Amazon.com
...so new examples are few and far between.

This book is well up to the standards set by its forebears. There was a time when a new DC universe archive appeared every month like clockwork. That no longer happens but we occasionally get a new one that recollects those glory days. The art is fully restored, not scanned, and the page count is over 250. Six complete issues of Batman are reproduced (#26-#31), a full year's worth of that then bimonthly title, which originally appeared from December 1944-January 1945 (#26) to October-November 1945 (#31).

By this time the stories had reached a certain sophistication that makes them readable even by modern day adults although today's kids will no doubt find them crude and simplistic. The artwork, although improving, is still relatively crude, but Dick Sprang is showing promise of greatness to come.

The classic Batman's rogues gallery is used rather sparingly. The Joker appears once, the Penguin twice, and the B-list Cavalier once. Punch and Judy are introduced in this volume. There is a 4 page Adventures of Alfred backup feature in each issue which are clever but none too flattering to Alfred.

It has been speculated that the only reason that new archives of Batman (and Superman) material keep appearing are to provide restored artwork for the Chronicles series. Any excuse that keeps the archive faucet dripping is fine with me.

Highly recommended as always to those cognizant of the limitations of Golden Age material.

HASH(0xb6d885f0) out of 5 stars the stories in here are a great gateway to the past Oct. 17 2014
By Mark Anderson - Published on Amazon.com
collecting issues 26-31 of batman, the stories in here are a great gateway to the past. featuring such classic villains as the joker, the penguin (twice, once with his apprentice), cavalier, and the first appearance of punch and judy. also featured are several "adventures of alfred", short humorous stories with the bumbling alfred, and one of my personal favorite stories, "ally babble and the fourteen peeves!", one of the funniest stories in classic batman history. a nice treat.
HASH(0xb2a6d7e0) out of 5 stars These reprints make my old comics look pale. Beautiful colors. Feb. 9 2014

The new printing makes the colors brighter than ever. Plus you don't have to leaf through those endless ads for 'Sea Monkeys.' And such a deal. It would cost a small fortune to get these classics in the original comic book form. The service was fast and the book arrived in perfect condition since it was extremely well packaged. I sure hope they reprint more in this series.
HASH(0xb2a6db1c) out of 5 stars another great archive edition. Nov. 28 2013

As with all the books in this series another great add. It's fun to go back to early days of batman and see the plentiful color comics as they were written. Looks great on any bookshelf.
