Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The writer/editor of the critically acclaimed The Krypton Companion and the designer of the eye-popping Spies, Vixens, and Masters of Kung Fu: The Art of Paul Gulacy team up to investigate the Silver and Bronze Ages of Batman comic books in The Batcave Companion! Two distinct sections of this book follow the Dark Knight's progression from his campy "New Look" of the mid-1960s to his "creature of the night" reinvention of the 1970s, through art-jammed interviews with and examinations of the work of CARMINE INFANTINO, JOE GIELLA, MURPHY ANDERSON, DENNIS O'NEIL, NEAL ADAMS, DICK GIORDANO, LEN WEIN, STEVE ENGLEHART, MARSHALL ROGERS, ELLIOT S! MAGGIN, MIKE GRELL, WALTER SIMONSON, JIM APARO, IRV NOVICK, and other fan favorites. Also included are explorations of Bat-lore such as the effects of the 1966 Batman TV show upon comics, a Batmobile timeline, and Batman's colorful rogues' gallery. With its incisive introduction by Dennis O'Neil and its iconic cover painting by Neal Adams, The Batcave Companion is a must-have for every Batman fan!
