Book Review: The Batman Chronicles, Vol. 8

The Batman Chronicles, Vol. 8The Batman Chronicles, Vol. 8 by Don Cameron

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


This book collects Batman stories from Detective Comics #71-74, Batman #14 and #15 and World's Finest #8 and #9rd the ar

In the book, there are appearances by four major Batman villains and one had another minor one. The Catwoman story is really good and features Batman and Catwoman seeming to get together for a while. The Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum story is great for just how weird and unsettling they look. The Penguin story is pretty good. I thought the Penguin story had a clever idea of him selling crime ideas, but he was way more brutal than the Penguin typically is. The Joker story contains the very silly idea of Batman delivering public lectures is a bit silly. The Scarecrow story is very generic.

Add to that, you have a touching Christmas story and another tale that seems to pay tribute to the honorable drugist.

These aren't all bad, however the quality isn't as good as some other volumes.
