Collects a number of Batman stories from the 1940s, '50s, and '60s which served as inspiration for select episodes of the 1960s Batman television series.

  • Introduction by Michael Uslan, executive producer of every single Batman film from the 1989 feature onward.
  • This collection notably excludes "The Menace of False Face" from Batman #113, whose villain would appear in "True Or False Face"/"Holy Rat Race". Given the obscurity of both the character and the issue, however, it is possible that the series' False Face was created completely independently of the comic's.
  • Despite her presence on the cover, this collection does not contain any Catwoman stories.
