The Batcave Companion Celebrating The Art and History of Comics
It will come as a shock to modern comic readers that Batman had not been the campy and colorful 60s icon up to the moment Frank Miller came along and the man they champion as inventing “Dark and Broody” did no such thing. TwoMorrow’s Batcave Companion chronicles the Bronze age progression and the works of Len Wein and Steve Englehart, who “Remembered the Dark but never forgot the Knight.”
240 page Trade Paperback – by Michael EURY & Michael KRONENBERG
Michael Eury, the writer/editor of the critically acclaimed The Krypton Companion, and Michael Kronenberg, the designer of the eye-popping Spies, Vixens, and Masters of Kung Fu: The Art of Paul Gulacy, team up to explore the Silver and Bronze Ages of Batman comic books in The Batcave Companion! Two distinct sections of this book examine the Dark Knight’s progression from his campy “New Look” of the mid-1960s to his “creature of the night” reinvention of the 1970s. Features include issue-by-issue indexes, interviews with CARMINE INFANTINO, JOE GIELLA, DENNIS O’NEIL, and NEAL ADAMS, and guest essays by MIKE W. BARR and WILL MURRAY. Contributors include SHELDON MOLDOFF, LEN WEIN, STEVE ENGLEHART, and TERRY AUSTIN, with a special tribute to the late MARSHALL ROGERS. With its incisive introduction by Dennis O’Neil and its iconic cover painting by Neal Adams, The Batcave Companion is a must-have for every comics fan!
