    I loved this, mostly as a leisurely study of the evolution of comics in general and an enduring, amazing character in particular. Stories from the entire 600s are conspicuously missing, as well as from the Grant and Breyfolgle runs. ...

    Great sampling of all the different eras the Detective Comics title has gone through over the past eighty years. It has a lot of Batman, like you would expect, having stuff like the first stories, the first appearances of the likes of Robin, Batwoman, Batgirl, Two-Face, Clayface, and T...

    An enjoyable journey through the Dark Knight Detective's past that had some excellent stories from the various decades and some shall we say interesting adventures? ...

    I won this book in a GoodReads give-a-way. Lucky Day! This book is a nice hardbound edition that offers a wide variety of stories from Detective Comics over the last 80 years. While the majority of the stories are Batman stories, some are about other characters who have been featured i...

    Edit: Some historical, political reasons why certain characters were introduced and how anti-gay propaganda influenced these comics - http://www.blastoffcomics.com/2014/01/bat/#lightbox/3/ Some standouts: First appearance of Robin: Story has been told bajillion times. But somet...

    Terrific tribute to Batman and Detective Comics as a whole. Love the combination of essays and carefully-selected comics that tie into the theme of who Batman is as a character and how he's grown and evolved over the years. I also love that we get to see a few firsts from some of B...

    Like they did last year before Action Comics hit its historic 1000 issue milestone, DC have produced a massive celebratory edition for Detective Comics (the company is named after this very title) ahead of its 1000th issue next week and also its 80th anniversary this year. The book sho...

    A combination of essays and comics, with the art of older books being awful but much better later. Essays are either good or wonderful. Doubt you?ll read this without learning many things. ...

    This collection forced me to reflect on my relationship with The Dark Knight. Why has he retained his popularity for so many years? Why do I follow him more closely than Superman? I believe I am like most people in that I appreciate his humanity, his pain, and his dark and brooding dem...

    An excellent way to celebrate the legacy of the long-running series, not only with the debuts of memorable characters but even those who are somewhat lost to history, as well as stories that represent the changing face of comic book storytelling and society itself. A variety of essays ...

    80 years of Batman in Detective comics. This collection also includes some of the supporting characters who have appeared in this comic over the last 80 years. ...

    Okay, I have a soft spot for this type of collection, flawed as they are in that they never manage to collect everything that I think should be collected. This collection's main focus appears to be on first appearances, though it veers from that with Slam Bradley, and contains the f...

    A fun collection of Batman stories from Detective Comics (the first comic to actually carry the Batman - issue 27). You have the first appearance of Batman, Robin, Batmite, the Riddler (a fav) Two Face, Batwoman,(remember her?), Man-Bat, you have some of the non-Batman characters Slam ...

    Loved taking my time with this one. The last two years have brought milestone anniversary treatments of Action and Detective Comics. Hopefully, the same with the Amazon reaches her 80th year. So glad that we got to travel the Dark Knights history with this collection of classic comic t...

    80 years of the Caped Crusader is a nice showing of the great history of the Bat. I really liked this issue and the critical text inside. Along with the special edition about Superman last year, this is something every comic book fan should have in his collection. ...

    I was hoping this edition would give me a better view of the transition comic books have gone through to the graphic novels of today. It has, sort of. The writing and atristry must really reflect the times and the demographics of the audience. I fondle remeber the comics of my youth an...

    This celebratory book has a smattering of stories from across the 80 years of Batman, specifically Detective Comics. I typically don't like these types of books but despite the variety it gave a decent representation of Batman, at least in the Gold/Silver/Bronze age. In those cases, th...

    It's good, but not great. Don't get me wrong, this is a nice book to have in your collection if you are a die-hard Batman fan, but it isn't absolutely necessary. There are better Batman books to have displayed on your bookshelf or sitting on your nightstand or coffee table than this on...

    You can find my review on my blog by clicking here. My undying and unconditional love for Batman has only grown to inconceivable heights ever since my first encounter of the Dark Knight as a child. There was so much to love about this superhero on top of the fact that he has no supe...

    The large pages and properly flexible spine make the book quite nice to read. The reproduced comics pages are well done. There are a very few exceptions: some pages that look rougher, and some that look pixelated, as if from a low resolution scan. It seems as if most of the book was re...

    I enjoyed this very much. DC even included some early non-Batman tales inside ?. I liked the overall selection of tales, but also enjoyed the essays throughout. ...

    A great thing to have for any die-hard Batman fan which I consider myself, but the thing about the Batman's published in of the 30s and 40s is tons of corny dialogue and not so stellar plots. ...

    Detective Comics: 80 Years of Batman is a compilation of some of the best representative Batman stories over the years to commemorate both the eightieth anniversary debut of one of the most iconic comic characters and to celebrate the (then) upcoming one-thousandth issue of Detective C...

    It was neat seeing some of the first appearances of Batman and many of his sidekicks and villains but some of the stuff featuring some of the other, lesser-known characters from Detective Comics were a little boring to me and while it's neat reading the older comics, they are often a b...
