    Batman in Detective comics is perky little book that simply reproduces the covers of DC's Detective comics from 1937 to 1962. I'm sure you could find a web page that has most of these covers, so why buy the book? Well, there's value in having them in a book that's easy to flip through and enjoy. You very quickly get a sense of the history and development of the title from its beginnings as a crime comic to the loopy science fiction adventures Batman enjoyed in the late 50s and early 60s.

    I wish this was a larger format book as the pages (10cm x 11cm) are really too small to appreciate the quaint artwork in such a thick little book. The first dozen pages whet the appetite well, with history and quotes from various artists, but this too could've been longer and less higgledy-piggledy. The rest of the book is occupied with the hundreds of Detective Comics covers from the first 25yrs. These are nicely presented, as quality photographs of actual comics, showing the occasional bit of I wish this was a larger format book as the pages (10cm x 11cm) are really too small to appreciate the quaint artwork in such a thick little book.

These are nicely presented, as quality photographs of actual comics, showing the occasional bit of wear or grafitti. When you see them all together like this, it's quite striking how ridiculous Batman has sometimes been throughout the decades, yet somehow we all still love the character 80yrs on. 3.75/5
