Issue Notes

The fifth volume in the BATMAN ARCHIVES series, this fabulous book reprints the early adventures of Batman and Robin from the 1940s as they encounter blackmailing mobsters, haunting apparitions, and historical heroes. In this beautiful tome, the Dynamic Duo must defeat an embezzler who has stolen Bruce Wayne's fortune, travel to London to help Scotland Yard solve a mystery, overcome the lethal insanity of the Joker, uncover the secret of the ghost that is haunting the Gotham Library, and work with Robin Hood in a tale of time travel and hypnosis. Black-and-white reconstruction by Rick Keene. Series design by Alex Jay/Studio J. Publication design by Louis Prandi.
