Number One With A Bullet

Batman 1

Batman 2

Batman 3

From Detective Comics #27
Story by Bill Finger; Art by Bob Kane

They say your first punch is always the most memorable!

Sure, “The Bat-Man’s” (looove that spelling!) inaugural adventure was a direct steal of a Theordore Tinsley-penned Shadow tale entitled “Partners In Peril.” The Dark Knight still had a certain … quality … that distinguished The Dark Knight from his pulp predecessor.

(Namely, a crushing left cross …)

I’m no fan of Bob Kane, but his crude pencils did achieve a weird air of menace that still can be found in  The Batman’s modern adventures.

Plus, you’ve gotta appreciate the little “ya-aaaaaaaa” as the evil-doer du jour meets his fitting end.
