BATMAN IN THE FIFTIES
Collecting sixteen tales originally written in the 1950s, these stories reflect the lighthearted and carefree era in which they took place. With Robin, Batwoman, Bat-Mite, and Ace the Bat-Hound by his side, the world's greatest detective faced off against a zany collection of foes that included giant fighting robots, kooky aliens and talking apes. Although the adventures may not have been deadly, they were, and still are, wildly entertaining.
