Detective Comics #27 (First Batman)

One cbr file | 4.3 Mb | 13 pages
People asked me about these issues in the past when I originally posted the first 10 issues of Detective Comics on another blog. "Do you have the original Batman issues?" Because Batman didn't make his first appearance in Detective Comics until issue #27. Some of you out there already have this issue, but starting next week I'll be posting issue #28. The issues that I'll be posting only include the Batman stories. So that's why the files will be only 6 to 12 pages long. It wasn't until the late 80s that Detective Comics became entirely focused on Batman adventures. The early stories in Detective Comics are unique in that Batman is portrayed as being a much darker character, resembling that of the modern day Batman. Bill Finger created Batman and wrote most of the early Batman stories, yet was never credited in one issue of Detective Comics. He was basically the Golden Age equivalent of a Stan Lee. While Bob Kane continued to pencil Batman, the character's adventures transformed into campy storylines during the 1950s and didn't really become serious or dark again until the 70s. We can only assume that Batman's gritty early stories vanished once Bill Finger left DC Comics. Okay, let's get this party started with the first story of Batman. Bauer out.
