Thanks to the hours I’ve spent reading through Michael Fleisher’s exhaustively researched Batman Encyclopedia (the indispensable resource containing the information that, yes, Batman and Ben Franklin have met each other on more than one occasion), my interest in Batman’s Golden Age adventures has been rekindled lately.
Not that it was ever gone, what with the fact that it’s an era primarily characterized by Batman beating criminals with other criminals, but while flipping through an issue where a crackpot scientist uses a series of tubes to transport Batman and Robin into a book of fairy tales, I saw something that might be even better.
Ladies and gentlemen…
AND ALSO A CROCODILE
Oh Golden Age Batman! Is there anything you won’t fight?
