Slightly less of a train-wreck than other black and white too-small-for-comic-books paperbacks. But only slightly. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0812520424, Mass Market Paperback)

To the fear-filled eyes of criminals everywhere, he is a man without a past--a Darknight Defender of the helpless and oppressed, a towering symbol of swift and vengeful justice, a wraith-like guardian of Gotham City's asphalt corridors. But to comic book fans throughout the world he is...Batman and he is a man with a mission. Now, for the first time in paperback, readers can discover the deepest secrets of the masked crimefighter, from his own origin to his first meeting with Robin, his partner in the war on crime. This spectacular re-telling of The Batman legend includes his initial encounters with his most menacing foes, as well as a fact filled tour through the Darknight Detective's secret headquarters, The Batcave. A veritable encyclopedia of the Cowled Crimefighter's past, The Untold Legend of the Batman will delight comic adventure fans everywhere!
