VERY FINE/NEAR MINT



'Beware of-Poison Ivy!' The debut of one of the Dynamic Duo's greatest foes is reprinted in this new facsimile edition, just in time for HARLEY QUINN AND POISON IVY #1! In this story, Poison Ivy crashes an art gallery opening to announce that she intends to become Gotham City's greatest villainess! How will the Caped Crusaders stop her mad plan-when Ivy's kisses can cloud men's minds? And in the backup story, Batman must help one of the Mystery Analysts of Gotham City when she's threatened by a mysterious voice. This issue also includes a two-page pinup of the Dynamic Duo!

BONUS REVIEW by "Doc" Schaefer


Facsimile or not, this is definately worth picking up. Classic Robert Kanigher script with pencils by Sheldon Moldoff (as Bob Kane)and inks by Joe Giella, this special highlights just how good the good ole days were! This one issue has so much history packed into it it boggles the mind. Aside from all those wonderful ads that are faithfully reproduced here, we get the 1st appearance of Poison Ivy as well as three little used female villainesses Dragon Fly, Silken Spider, and Tiger Moth but you also get a two page Batman & Robin mini-poster by Carmine Infantino and Murphy Anderson who also do the cover. Check out what a Batman Comic should be like. My main question is why doesn't DC use that red cover color anymore?

I give it 10 out of 10 Grahams
