Hello, and welcome to another old school.
Today’s entry is about the legendary Dark Knight, and he’s first appearance on number 27 of the famous series, which recently reached number 1000, no easy feat.
In his appearance by Bat-Man, as he is referred to, we see another legendary character from the Batman mythos, Commissioner Gordon, as he is having a conversation with young Bruce Wayne, he is call to serve a murder.
Wayne jumps into action and stops the diabolical plots of the very dangerous Crime Syndicate.
One thing I can see in this early superhero comics is the lack of the archetypal villains we are used to now, all fun of bravado and colorful costumes, the villains in this early stories are represented mainly by mobsters or really greedy sons.
But as with any Batman stories I always enjoy seeing the Dark Knight in action.
This story was first published on March, 1939 and it began a history than that this year turned 80 years old.
The creation of Bob Kane and Bill Finger is more alive than ever, and with some amazing writers and illustrators still passionate about this character, it will be no surprise that in future generations they will celebrating another 80 years of stories.
Next old school Monday will stay with in the Bat Family, for now I’ll keep it a surprise.
Off to read.
