    Great fun with some grotesque art and film noir aspects. the war hangs heavy over this collection, from Dec 1942-Apr 1943. Big time villains are scarce, only one penguin and one scarecrow. Some japanazis and hardened criminals provide the opposition.

The Catwoman story is really good and features Batman and Catwoman seeming to get together for a while. The Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum story is great for just how weird and unsettling they look. The Penguin story is pretty good. I thought the it had a clever idea of him selling crime ideas, but he was way more brutal than the Penguin typically is. The Joker story contains the very silly idea of Batman delivering public lectures in auditoriums that include segments where he mocks criminals. The Scarecrow story is very generic and could have been done by any thug. Add to that, you have a touching Christmas story and another tale that seems to pay tribute to the honorable drugist, and then you have a lot more generic stories and at least one is way too similar to the Penguin story for my liking. I'd probably rate this one 3.5 stars. It's not bad, particularly when you have Batman's strong rogue's gallery active (very rare for the Golden Age), but there are some problems in those stories and there are some plot lines that are repeated which when the book only covers a few month is kind of a problem. There have been better volumes in this set and hopefully there will be again.
