    1. The Batman Sunday strips is a bit of a mixed bag. On one hand, they avoided the low points that the daily strips suffered where Batman and Robin would not be seen for months in costume. On the other hand, the stories were not nearly as complex and a few stories were disappointing particularly the first storyline and the last two.However, this book does have some worthwhile features. It features early appearances by the Joker, Penguin, Catwoman, and an early version of Two Face. In addition, Batm [...]


    2. 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 [...]


    3. Completely enjoyable. The sunday format demanded an interim storytelling format, story arcs probably only lasted 3-4 Sundays max so they had to be compelling and easy to follow but not dull. There are some genuinely bizzare villains in this, not seriously wicked but oddly dangerous, more of the daycare center crazy than the full on maximum security loony bin crazy. Probably because the format didnt merit the deeper storyline and characterization. All feature the Batman-Robin partnership and Robi [...]


    4. Sunday funnies featuring Batman from the Forties. Some actually illustrated by Bob Kane himself and many illustrated by the rakishly named Dick Sprang. Because of the compact space the episodes are pretty short so don't expect much in the way of plot development. The best stories are the ones with the supervillains in them, i.e. The Penguin, The Joker, etc. There's some great supplemental extras in the book displaying promo stuff for The Dynamic Duo. Not bad for Batman completists.


    5. Meh. Not my favorite era of Batman to begin with, these stories don't particularly leap off the page. There's a few enjoyable episodes--the second Penguin story, for example, and the Catwoman story. There are also some mediocre stories featuring the Penguin (again) and the Joker. The majority of the stories deal with the duo fighting common criminals and solving mysteries.The collection is boosted somewhat by some excellent supplemental material.


    6. A very innocent and serialized form for our erstwhile heroes.Enjoyed it for its historical signifigance, which turned it into a 4 star effort, when the content was really a 3 star.Overall a fair and historically relevent addition to the Batman lexicon.


    7. I read a lot of these when I was a kid. A fun look back at the early incarnation of Batman and Robin. some memorable stories, but do not expect the 'Dark Knight' here.


    8. when my brother and me were able to read written books- our mom would no longer allow us to read comic books. as far as dailies go, I do not recall any crime/superhero series. so reading these are just new for me, in some way hoping to compare with 'watchmen', to get a sense of history, as these would have been when my father was a kid. when the Dick Tracy movie came out, I found two modern collections, which my father had followed. fun, primitive, uncomplicated, I still much prefer those books [...]


    9. Kid-approved! Of course, this book features many tales that I was unfamiliar with. I am certain that it was cutting edge stuff back in its day. All in all, it was very enjoyable and quite entertaining.
