New Comics Day: Batman - The Caped Crusader; EC Comics Library; Silly Symphonies

Our picks this week. Click the links to order items from Amazon.

This new collection of 1990s Batman stories takes the Dark Knight behind the Iron Curtain to battle the mysterious Demon. Then, the Penguin exploits a disfigured genius for his latest evil scheme, but Batman helps turn his tech skills to the side of good. The Joker goes on a new killing spree--but is it really the Clown Prince of Crime, or is this a case of a copycat killer? And the Riddler returns in the three-part story "Dark Knight, Dark City." 
Collects Batman #445-454, Detective Comics #615 and Batman Annual #14.

This book collects all of the legendary comics stories that Craig and EC great Al Feldstein collaborated on under the pseudonym F.C. Aljon. Of special interest to collectors, we present two stories for the first time since their initial publication more than 70 years ago. "Moon Girl," EC's first (and only) superhero and one of EC's earliest horror stories, and "Zombie Terror," both scanned from the original art. Plus "Edna Sunday," the story of a vicious woman murderer, restored for the first time ever with its original, never-before-printed shocking splash panel. Twenty-six stories in all, with essays and commentary by EC experts. Black & white illustrations throughout.

This concluding volume of the series features an adaptation of Bambi, plus the rarely seen Sunday pages featuring The Three Caballeros stars José Carioca and Panchito from 1942 to 1945. With these stories, the complete Silly Symphony newspaper strips are collected for the first time! It's a symphony of fun and adventure from Disney's classic period.
