Read full description of the books:
I thought 2013 wold be the year in which I tackled Proust. Instead it became the year I read Neil Gaiman's Sandman Omnibus and now, I'm about to undertake Grant Morrison's R.I.P. Batman series.
Required reading for the R.I.P. Batman series is Batman: The Black Casebook. It’s a scant 144 page trade paperback — flat colors printed on off-white newsprint to capture the feel of 50's comics — with reprints of the stories Morrison used as research for Batman’s history in R.I.P. He focused on the most outlandish of the 1950s comics, filled with atomic fear, aliens, personality switches, and anxiety. It’s a wonderful book in a lot of ways
I was warned about the campy content throughout The Black Casebook (Robin is a wimpy crybaby in green bikini bottoms), but I thought that it would be worth it as context for amazing work Grant Morrison has done on his run with Batman. In that sense it absolutely was. Morrison lays out for his readers some really interesting precedents for what he’s doing, drawing from the deepest recesses of Batman’s past. I love the idea that Morrison treats the disavowed history of the character as canonical. He simultaneously re-imagines the history of the property by bringing those stories back into print.
Morrison is a smart writer who cleverly weaves Batman's past, present and future together in R.I.P. Batman by drawing on from the stories in The Black Casebook. If only other writers were brave enough to do the same with iconic comic book heroes -- Captain America, Spiderman, Superman and Doctor Strange immediately come to mind. In the end, The Black Case book harkens back to a time when there was joy in the silliness of superhero comics and life was so much simpler.

Read information about the authorWilliam "Bill" Finger was an American comic strip and comic book writer best known as the uncredited co-creator, with Bob Kane, of the DC Comics character Batman, as well as the co-architect of the series' development. In later years, Kane acknowledged Finger as "a contributing force" in the character's creation. Comics historian Ron Goulart, in Comic Book Encyclopedia, refers to Batman as the "creation of artist Bob Kane and writer Bill Finger", and a DC Comics press release in 2007 about colleague Jerry Robinson states that in 1939, "Kane, along with writer Bill Finger, had just created Batman for [DC predecessor] National Comics".
Film and television credits include scripting The Green Slime (1969), Track of the Moon Beast (1976), and three episodes of 77 Sunset Strip.
