Not of one of the great comic strips, but this fun reprint of Sunday strips is far more satisfying than the comic book stories published at the same time. The story telling pitfalls of the magazine, the crooks escape two or three times until it is time to end the story, fit the natural rhythm of a Sunday comic strip, so the escapes do not seem like a cheap trick to fill eight pages in a comic book, but a natural way to end a Sunday sequence in a semi-cliff hanger. Because the Sunday funnies had the best artists doing comics, DC usually assigned the best of the Batman artists to this strip, which is to say that Bob Kane’s participation is slight, and that helps too. A great example of one of the B comic strips of the forties.
