Strange Apparitions – must read Batman stories …18

if you haven’t read Strange Apparitions, chances are you’ve never heard of Bruce Wayne’s best love interest, Silver St. Cloud. She’s smart enough to deduce Batman’s true identity and strong enough to break the Batman’s heart. And that’s just part of the mix in this great tale from the late ’70s featuring underappreciated lunatic Hugo Strange (back from the dead) and the Joker (creating more dead). Plus, as a bonus, you get to see Hugo Strange dressed as Batman.

Batman: Year One gets a little too much credit for “reinventing Batman.” The truth is that there were great Batman stories before Year One. This is the best you’ll find from the pre-Year One era that’s been collected in a TPB. And it serves as a worthwhile introduction to Hugo Strange.
