    1. This book is less bad than a disappointment. This is the first volume of silver age Batman exploits not tainted by old school cornballs Gardner Fox and John Broome. It should be a progression, but in reality it's a regression, as the staleness of these so-so modern crime tales gets dull.The art wasn't bad, wasn't great either. Neal Adams is a great artist, with his huge sense of scale, but he's largely disregarded for Irv Novick and Bob Brown. Brown has a solid career, doing things like "Marvel [...]


    2. For fans of Batman, the Silver Age of the 1960s doesn't offer much. The comic took its tone largely from the Adam West TV show, or the generic Silver Age sort of comics that were across the DC line of a smiling do-gooder who did good because it was good. This changed, of course, when writers like Denny O'Neil and artists like Neal Addams got their hands on the character, and this volume represents the beginning of that era, though the two listed creators mostly work with other writers and artist [...]


    3. Well, this is my first review, please be kind.In the late 1960s and early 1970s, Batman was updated considerably. Golden Age artist and writer Frank Robbins had him move out of the Batcave into a penthouse apartment above Wayne Enterprises Headquarters. Bruce Wayne's philanthropical impulses turned towards assisting victims of crimes. Robin had gone to college.Gone were the outlandish villains and the focus turned to who-dun-its. The trend was continued into the 1970s when Denny O'Neil and Neal [...]


    4. Great stuff from the silver age. I've never been a big fan of Frank Robbins as an artist, but the man could really lay out a nice mystery. Don't get me wrong, there are a few head shaking moments, but overall it's good stuff. It's nice to be reminded that Batman wasn't always the unstoppable manhunter as he is currently portrayed. Irv Novick with Dick Giordano inks make for a really nice visual. The real jewels here, at least for me are the Neal Adams & Denny O'Neil stories. This is the stuf [...]


    5. Some classic Batman stories in herece to see the beginnings of the Man-Bat and League of Assassin'sbut I didn't really like the moving from Wayne Manor to a penthouse apartment on top of Wayne Enterprisesor that a smaller spare Batcave was just UNDER the buildingor the fact that Ten Eyed Man was made out to be this huge threatOverall a lot of good and classic stories but a lot of head scratching at times as well.


    6. Even though this volume said it was moving away from the camp of the 1960s Batman tv show, there is still quite a lot of goofiness here. Also, no first tier villains like the Joker, Riddler, Catwoman, or Penguin. Instead we get Man-Bat!


    7. A collection of comics from an earlier age. I remember a lot of these from when I read comics years ago and while mostly they stand the test of time, some of the slang and the tone of the narrative really dates it.
