DESCRIPTION
white pages; signed by Julius Schwartz on page 1 and Murphy Anderson on page 1 of the Elongated Man story
Infantino cvr/art; origin & 1st app. of Batgirl (Barbara Gordon)
Inspired by the Silver Age Bat-Girl, who was devised as a sidekick for Bat-Woman during the family-friendly days of the 1950s, the producers of the 1960's Batman TV series tasked DC editor Julius Schwartz with the creation of a new character to boost the show's sagging ratings with female audiences. Schwartz, in collaboration with Gardner Fox and Carmine Infantino, responded with a new, improved Batgirl, this time tying her in more closely with Batman by casting her as Commissioner Gordon's daughter, Barbara. While the TV show didn't last much longer, the comic character was an instant success with readers, becoming a vital and integral part of the DC Universe over the next half-century.
