Detective issues #27 and 38 may get all the attention, but true Bat-fanatics and Golden Age aficionados know that pre-Robin issues #28 through 37 contain some of the moodiest and compelling Batman stories ever published and some of the most dynamic covers of the pre-war era. This issue is probably the most famous and most difficult to obtain as it s adorned with the iconic Golden Age visage of the caped crusader. Dark, brooding, and classic, this cinematic image more than any other captures the drama and crude power of early Batman and easily demonstrates why so many Bat-collectors are nearly fetishistic about this brief but fertile period in the character s history. No serious DC Golden Age collection is complete without this masterpiece, which explains the feeding frenzy that ensues on the rare instances that copies make it to market. The Batman tale contained within this book s pages bears the distinction of introducing not only the Batgyro, a precursor to the Batplane, but also the famous Batarang, a useful tool still brandished by the Caped Crusader.
