Summary
"The tremendous Batman craze of 1966 was not just a national phenomenon, but a global one. And few countries on Earth embraced it with as much manic furor as Japan--not just in terms of producing memorabilia, but in creating actual, authorized Batman comics stories by and for the Japanese, written and drawn by manga master Jiro Kuwata. Now for the first time in more than forty years, these nearly forgotten tales are collected, translated and reprinted--along with an eyepopping look at the astounding toys, games, and ephemera that attended them."--Jacket
Summary
