KID'S KLASSIC KOMIC KOVERS - GIANT BATMAN ANNUAL #1


Image copyright DC COMICS

Remember those 80 page Giant issues that  DC COMICS used
to publish?  Weren't they great?  Wish DC (and MARVEL) still did
them (and not just replica editions) today.  Anyway, here's the first
BATMAN Annual for you to paste your peepers on.

What I liked about them was lots of good stories for cheap! Who wouldn't like that. They were new to me. And that's definitely Dick Sprang art.

Yeah, they were great. I like looking through my old ones.

US annuals were always a treat with that thick spine and lots of colour pages and that is a really great great cover (first time I' ve seen this one). The cover looks like all Sprang to me but according to Mikes Amazing World of Comics blog the cover credits here are pencillers: Curt Swan. Sheldon Moldoff and Dick Sprang and Charles Paris INKS

First time you've seen it, McScotty? I posted it before with the next 3 covers - you must've missed it. DC released a replica edition a few years ago, which is worth having.

"Weren't they good?", you ask! GOOD? - They were flippin' fantastic, especially the Batman ones!
Absolutely delightful and leave you wanting more!

There's a book called DC COMICS CLASSICS LIBRARY containing the first 3 Batman Annuals, JP. It was published in 2009 - you'd love it. Over to eBay with you.

Oops, just noticed you left a comment over on my post about this book, so you already know about it.
