*DC: During DC’s 1970s flirtation with the 100 Page Super-Spectacular format, Batman’s series was promoted to 100 Page status every issue, with new material backed up by a plethora of stories from the 1940s through to the 1960s; unlike most other Super-Specs, which presented a variety of features, the Batman 100 Pagers were all Bats. We open this consecutive selection with #254 and close with #262 – the latter not 100 Pages, but still a Giant, and the last issue before the series reverted to the 32 page standard. The new lead stories in these issues feature all the classic villains – Man-Bat, Catwoman, Penguin, Two-Face, the Joker and the Scarecrow – plus a guest-appearance by pulp hero the Shadow, and a rather nifty Neal Adams-drawn werewolf tale. With the exception of #254, which is a respectable VG, most of these are nice copies grading VF or better. Pictured is #257 VF/NM £61.
