Yes, a 1960s Batman Annual is one of the finest things in the world, and if you pair it with french fries it is the best thing ever. Why, where else could you find reprints of some of the most fantastic and fun Batman tales of the 1950s, including all these stories!:
No, sorry...this is not a single page with all these awesome events happening at once...these are indidviaul panels taken from different stories. But you have to admit, if they were all the same story, it would be the most awesomest Batman story in the galaxy. Why, even that guy in the first panel has had his mind blown by the concept...just check out his beswoggled expression!
What's more, this Annual features your exclusive 1962 Batman Calendar. My brain is seriously full of the magnificence of this magazine!
Be sure to clip and save that Batman calendar! You'll be looking at it every day of the year...um, when 2018 rolls around and it's the correct calendar. But it's worth pinning up on your wall for the next five years! We salute you, Batman Annual #2!
