*DC: Newly added, more than 60 issues of Brave & Bold’s second half – a solid run of Batman team-ups with the super-stars and the super-obscure heroes from the DC Universe. Popular and frequently recurring partners for the Caped Crusader – despite not having their own series at the time – were Metamorpho, Wildcat and the Metal Men, while most of Bat’s Justice League colleagues were frequent attendees. More oddball team-ups included Lois Lane, Rose & the Thorn, Swamp Thing, Kamandi, Man-Bat and the Riddler! Almost all issues illustrated by Jim Aparo, and almost all done-in-one stories. Highlights include two issues where Batman teamed up with the Joker rather than opposing him – #111 and #191 – and the classic and poignant ‘Interlude on Earth-Two’ from #182 – but almost any given B & B from this period was a reliable jolt of fast paced super-hero action without the need to get involved in a universe-spanning saga.
