Batman - Robin Meets Man-Bat! - Update

sg
Produced by Arthur Korb.

Neal Adams' checklist lists this as being a reprint from Detective Comics #402 (story by Frank Robbins, art by Neal and Dick Giordano), but I had always thought the DC/Power Record stories were all original.

Not having a copy of 'Tec #402, I can't check, but from what I've been able to look up, the story in that issue is listed at fifteen pages, but the story here is twenty pages long. Anybody out there have an answer?

Love that back cover!


Now with added PDF!

This was produced by Arthur Korb (it says so on the label on the 45) and features material adapted from Detective Comics #400 and Detective Comics #407.

^Parts of it are completely lifted from those issues. I've seen some sources claim the whole thing was a reprint, but it's not...just most of the flashback panels.

Oh, and Adams recycled his Superman and Batman from the cover of the 1976 DC Calendar, for the back cover here. So lots of Adams swiping from himself in this comic!

Thanks for this stroll down memory lane. I used to listen to this & follow along with the comic as a kid. Forty-some years later, it was fun to do so again.

As already posted this has elements of both Detective 400 and 407. If 402 was added it would have had to include Man-Bat finding a certain hiding place...well I don't want to give the rest of the story away but it was basically the 2nd part to the original story spread over a year and not back to back issues.
