Every day this month will have the five goofiest moment from a five-issue stretch of a particular comic book run. Once a week it will be the ten goofiest moments of a ten-issue stretch. Here is a list of the moments featured so far.
Today we’re looking at the first ten issues of Batman’s solo comic book. The first nine issues of Batman were produced by writer Bill Finger and the art team of Bob Kane, Jerry Robinson and George Roussos (each issue had multiple stories). 1942′s Issue #10 added writers Joseph Greene and Jack Schiff to the mix, plus layout artist Fred Ray.
As always, this is all in good fun. I don’t mean any of this as a serious criticism of the comics in question. Not only were these writers certainly never imagining people still reading these comics decades after they were written, great comics often have goofy moments (Kirby/Lee’s Fantastic Four is one of the best comic book runs of all-time and there were TONS of goofy stuff in those 100 plus issues!).
