Batman Comics Kindle eBooks
Batman is an ongoing American comic book series featuring the DC Comics superhero Batman as its main protagonist. The character, created by Bob Kane and Bill Finger, first appeared in Detective Comics #27 (May 1939). Batman proved to be so popular that a self-titled ongoing comic book series began publication with a cover date of spring 1940. It was first advertised in early April 1940, one month after the first appearance of his new sidekick, Robin the Boy Wonder. Batman comics have proven to be popular since the 1940s. Though the Batman comic book was initially launched as a quarterly publication, it later became a bimonthly series through the late 1950s, after which it became a monthly publication and has remained so ever since. In September 2011, The New 52 rebooted DC’s continuity. In this new timeline, the original Batman series ended and was relaunched with a new first issue. In 2016, DC Comics began a second relaunch of its entire line of titles called DC Rebirth that continued continuity from The New 52. Batman (vol. 3) #1 (August 2016) was the debut twice-monthly relaunch of the comic book series.
In March 2021, DC Comics initiated another major relaunch called Infinite Frontier, beginning with issue #106 of the flagship Batman title. The first stories appearing in the Batman comic book were written by Bill Finger and illustrated by Bob Kane, though Finger went uncredited for years thereafter. These early stories depicted a vengeful Batman, not hesitant to kill when he saw it as a necessary sacrifice. In one of the early stories, he is depicted using a gun and metal bat to stop a group of giant assailants and again with a group of average criminals. The Joker, a psychopath who is notorious for using a special toxin called Joker Venom that kills and mutilates his victims, remains one of the most prolific and notorious Batman villains created in this time period. Later, during the Silver Age, this type of supervillain changed from disturbing psychological assaults to the use of amusing gimmicks.
