    Batman comics enter the goofy zone in this collection of Batman Newspaper strips from 1966 and 1967. These are from different from the 1940s strips which were mostly serious (or as serious Batman comic strips were at the time.) Here, the full on goofiness of the TV series is reflected in this collection with many stories told with tongue firmly planted in cheek.

Here, the full on goofiness of the TV series is reflected in this collection with many stories told with tongue firmly planted in cheek. The series featured villains such as Cat-woman, the Joker, Penguin, Poison Ivy, and the Riddler along with an early appearance by Batgirl before she appeared on television. The highlights of the book were in the last half of it which included not only the Batgirl story, but also a story guest starring Jack Benny as well as an epic 9 month tale (the aftermath of which we won't actually see until the next book.) These stories are interesting. Even as someone who enjoys a little Silver Age silliness, I will confess there were a few storylines I found to be a little too over the top for my liking, but overall I found the book to be fairly fun. The strips are nicely curated with notes on each strip story as well as a great deal of background material which makes this a treat for any collector.

    Not the greatest comic strip ever, but fun and often funny, especially if you like the 1966 Batman TV show and the less serious super-heroics of the sixties. Even better than than the "Holy This and That" borrowed from the TV show is Robin's recurrent "I guess I'm just a mean-minded little kid" after Batman rebukes him for some thoughtlessness or other, with the Boy Wonder's self-deprecating adjective varied to fit the scene. Artist Joe Giella really shines here.

Artist Joe Giella really shines here. His pencils and inks are the best work of his I've ever encountered, leagues ahead of his inking for DC in the same time frame. And there are several credited (Carmine Infantino, Sheldon Moldoff) and uncredited (if my eyes don't deceive me, Gil Kane on the 12/20/1967 daily) pencil assists from others throughout.

    Haven't properly read it yet, but I have to say, this is a beautiful book. I love that it's both the dailies and Sundays.
