Legends of the Dark Knight: Jim Aparo Hardcover
Jim Aparo was quite simply The Batman Artist. No one can pretend to be a connoisseur of comics or even a marginally informed Batman fan without knowing the name. At a time when DC Comics is struggling to prove it values and appreciates its own history, is struggling to redeem itself in the eyes of alienated fans, what better way than to assemble a hardcover that will both reach out to those fans and educate the new generation that have been sadly bamboozled by the overhyped sensations of the moment.

Jim Aparo was one of the premier Batman artists of the 1970s, working primarily on the Batman team-up title THE BRAVE AND THE BOLD. Now, DC collects Aparo’s run on the series in hardcover for the first time from the beginning. Aparo portrayed Batman as a detective who operated in shadow, yet captured the action and thrills of the Caped Crusader.
These stories feature appearances by numerous DC heroes (and villains) including Robin, Green Arrow, Black Canary, The Teen Titans, Deadman, Wonder Woman, The Demon, The Joker, Aquaman, The Atom and many others.
