Bat-Manga! The Secret History of Batman in Japan (Hardcover)

In 1966, during the height of the first Batman craze, a weekly Japanese manga anthology for boys, Shonen King, licensed the rights to commission its own Batman and Robin stories. A year later, the stories stopped. They were never collected in Japan, and never translated into English. Now, hundreds of pages of Batman-manga comics more than four decades old are translated for the first time, appearing alongside photographs of the world's most comprehensive collection of vintage Japanese Batman toys.

The deluxe, expanded, and limited hardcover edition has a distinctly different cover, full-color printed endpapers, and an extra adventure written by Jiro Kuwata (not included in the paperback), about a band of rogue alien robot art thieves at large in Gotham City. Guess who gets called in to save the day...
