batman-idw-comic-strips

Big-name publishers DC and IDW have recently entered a partnership that will result in a new collection of Batman’s Silver Age newspaper strips, serving as a counterpart to the Silver Age Superman series. The strips were penned by veteran Batman editor Whitney Ellsworth, with art by Shelly Moldoff, Joe Giella, and Carmine Infantino. The strips first debued in 1966, and were modeled after the Batman TV series of that time, which featured Adam West and Burt Ward as Batman and Robin, respectively.

The first volume of the collection will consist of reprints of all B&W dailies and color Sundays from 1966 and 1967, features an all-star list of Batman and Robin characters, including Catwoman, the Penguin, the Joker, Poison Ivy, and Batgirl! The 11 x 8.5″ hardcover designed and edited by Dean Mullaney will feature a dust jacket cover by Pete Poplaski, and will be 256 pages, including an introduction by Joe Desris.

“Ellsworth and the artists perfectly captured the flavor of the television show,” Mullaney says. ‘It’s a tremendous amount of fun, both as nostalgia and as a unique creation of its time.”
