For the first time, DC Comics collects Batman stories originally published between 1948 and 1966 that were adapted into specific episodes of the classic Batman TV series! Starring The Joker, The Penguin, The Riddler and Mr. Freeze (here called “Mr. Zero”), and featuring the debut of Batgirl, these stories have never been collected together before. Collected from BATMAN #53, 73, 121, 140, 169 and 171, and DETECTIVE COMICS #230, 346 and 359.

The only problem with this though, is that it looks like at least 4-5 stories may not be included in this edition.

Those stories are:

Batman #161 February, 1964- “The New Crimes of the Mad Hatter” and Detective Comics 230 April, 1956- “The Mad Hatter of Gotham City” - Episodes 13 and 14, - “The Thirteenth Hat” and “Batman Stands Pat,” and Episodes 69 and 70- “The Contaminated Cowl” and “The Mad Hatter Runs Afoul.”

Detective Comics #341 July, 1965- “The Joker’s Comedy Capers” - Episodes 31 and 32 “Death in Slow Motion” and “The Riddler’s False Notion”

Batman #36 Aug-Sep, 1946- “The Penguin’s Nest” - Episodes 61 and 62 - “The Penguin’s Nest” and “The Bird’s Last Jest”

Batman #130, March 1960-“Batman’s Deadly Birthday,” and Detective Comics #140 October, 1948- “The Riddler” - Episodes 79 and 80 - “Batman’s Anniversary” and “A Riddling Controversy”
