Issue #3, Batman (Fall 1940)
I promised the first Monday of the month would be Batsy, and I’m determined to deliver. Now, let me explain a bit about what I’m gearing up to do. We’ve been following, thus far, Batsy and Robin through the Detective Comics line. That’s all well and good, but the stories have, of late, devolved into B&R v. gangsters. Which, frankly, I’ve been having a hell of a time snarking.
There are, of course, the Batman annual issues, but those are HUGE (like, four to five comics per issue). However, some of them have introduced the most colorful of Batsy’s rogue’s gallery, and so, that is where I’m going. I mean, hey, if I’m only rolling out Batsy once a month, might as well make it interesting, yeah? I’ll break them into bite sized chunks (the same size as a standard issue) and work my way through.
So strap yourselves in. We’re pressing the rewind button and snarking Batman #3.
