    Amazing ! Read it 3rd time for sake of goodreads and I still find it thrilling !

    These characters that were created here went on to become even greater ! I intend to read all the possible material I can find !

    The insanity created in jokers character gets me every time ! Not just in this comic, in most of them.

    P.S. Loved the leap year joke lol.

    So this was pretty fun to read from an historical perspective. It holds up pretty well 75+ years on as long as you know where it's coming from. Some might think that this is a safer, softer, more tame Batman. Sure, it's the 40s, but it sure ain't some kid-friendly Batman. More like a pre-code gangster movie with a guy dressed like a bat! People die at every turn. Heck, even Bats kills a few. That whole thing about him not using guns? Sorta true, except for the part that he uses a machine gun on

    So this was pretty fun to read from an historical perspective. It holds up pretty well 75+ years on as long as you know where it's coming from. Some might think that this is a safer, softer, more tame Batman. Sure, it's the 40s, but it sure ain't some kid-friendly Batman. More like a pre-code gangster movie with a guy dressed like a bat! People die at every turn. Heck, even Bats kills a few. That whole thing about him not using guns? Sorta true, except for the part that he uses a machine gun on his Bat plane to blow away some thugs in a car! Interesting stuff and serves as an introduction to the Joker, Hugo Strange, and the Cat. Maybe due to the interpretation of the violence at the time, in one story Batman takes a weird aside to show kids how cowardly armed criminals are and they shouldn't be idolized. How does he do this? Takes away their guns and makes them fight the Boy Wonder. That's right kids. Guns are for weak sissies. Don't believe me? Well, I'm willing to risk the life of this child to prove it. Again, seems a bit weird in the story and takes you out of it for a bit. Thinking this might have been an editorial decision to separate them from the pack of crime stories.

    It was fun , the 4 stories were too simple and minimalistic and it's acceptable for the 1st issue ever made .

    Everyone says Golden Age characters reflect a "simpler time". There was nothing simple about the 1940s. Less than half the country had electricity or running water, America was still reeling from the depression, and the threat of world domination loomed in Europe.

    These early Batman stories reflect a rougher, rawer time. The people weren't so much naive or innocent as they were optimistic. They really expected others, and society, to be at its best. Batman's savagery in the

    Everyone says Golden Age characters reflect a "simpler time". There was nothing simple about the 1940s. Less than half the country had electricity or running water, America was still reeling from the depression, and the threat of world domination loomed in Europe.

    These early Batman stories reflect a rougher, rawer time. The people weren't so much naive or innocent as they were optimistic. They really expected others, and society, to be at its best. Batman's savagery in the face of real evil is an image of that time's reaction to a faction of that society's refusal to be part of the greater good.

    I've wanted to see this comic my entire life. I was not disappointed; all the elements that have made this character and his universe the most popular hero today are here!
