From Bud Plant books: "Batman 66: The TV Stories: For the first time, DC Comics collects Batman stories originally published between 1948 and 1966 that were adapted into specific episodes of the classic Batman TV series! And this presents a Who's Who of the best writers AND artists of Batman! Starring The Joker, The Penguin, The Riddler and Mr. Freeze (here called “Mr. Zero”), and featuring the debut of Batgirl. These stories have never been collected together before.
Additional artists here include Jack Burnley, George Roussos, Joe Giella, and Charles Paris. New cover by Amanda Conner & Paul Mounts. Look again at the credits line and you'll find here are collected stories and art by the premier creators of Batman, from the Riddler story of 1948, with the story by Bill Finger (the co-creator of Batman) and artwork by the great Dick Sprang, with Charles Paris, and a cover by the unheralded but excellent Win Mortimer.
And here is an outstanding final story to this collection, "The Million Dollar Debut of Batgirl," written in 1967 by Gardner Fox and drawn by the superb team of Carmine Infantino and Syd Greene…with a cover by Infantino and Anderson, who most collectors consider the premier Batman artists of the Silver Age. Ten complete stories, collected from Batman #53, 73, 121, 140, 169 and 171, and Detective #230, 346 and 359. Introduction by Michael Uslan."
