With Batman's 300th appearance in DETECTIVE COMICS, editor Julie Schwartz decided to give Batman and Robin a "new look." In 1964, the sales on these characters — believe it or not — were low and in need of a kick-start. But in the hands of Schwartz's talented team of writers and artists, the Dynamic Duo were revitalized and regained their popularity!By popular demand, DC inaugurates a new Archive series with BATMAN: THE DYNAMIC DUO ARCHIVES Volume One — a 240-page hardcover advance-solicited for arrival in February. Written by Gardner Fox and John Broome, and illustrated by Carmine Infantino & Joe Giella, these celebrated stories have never been collected before! This collection gives comics fans the opportunity to watch a new editorial approach grow and mature.This volume reprints BATMAN #164-167 and DETECTIVE COMICS #327-333 — considered to be the first "Silver Age" adventures of Batman & Robin. Some of the pulse-pounding tales you can expect within include "The Joker's Last Laugh," "The Man Who Stole From Batman," "Batman's Super-Powered Punch," and "Batman Battles the Living Beast-Bomb!" All this, plus an Elongated Man story!
