This is a companion piece for Morrison's "Batman R.I.P." You don't need to read this collection to understand Morrison's graphic novel, but it does put more of it into some kind of context. A weird, colorful context. The stories here, from the 1950s and '60s, are not what most people now associate with Batman. While not well-written for the most part (the plotting and dialogue is often laugh-out-loud funny), they're far-out and highly imaginative, entertaining in a strange, wacky sort of way. Not everyone is a fan of this kind of superhero story, especially involving the Dark Knight, but I really enjoy this kind of diversion. Just don't take it too seriously!
