A Classic Batman Collection Worth Getting! DC Showcase Presents Batman Vol. 5

    I am a huge DC comics superhero fan, and Batman has always been my (Rob) favorite. I grew up reading Batman comics in the mid-1970s (thanks to my dad) and loved them. Little did I know that it would be one of the BEST periods of Batman comics in history. Neal Adams, an incredible artist brought a new, darker, more serious side of Batman, and I also loved the art of Irv Novick. Writers like Dennis O'Neil,Frank Robbins and Mike Friedrich made him much more of a detective.
    Recently I finished reading an incredible collection of some of the BEST Batman stories and artwork EVER!
  A Classic Batman Collection Worth Getting! Showcase Presents Batman Vol. 5
   SUMMARY:  Written by FRANK ROBBINS, DENNIS O'NEIL and MIKE FRIEDRICH Art by IRV NOVICK, NEAL ADAMS and others - Cover by NEAL ADAMS   512 pg, B&W

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
