The Kids Present Comics Archeology - BATMAN: The Jiro Kuwata Batmanga

At the height the 1960's Batman television shows popularity, Shonen King manga magazine in Japan serialized fifty-three chapters, starring The Dark Knight, which were all written and illustrated by Jiro Kuwata. These rare Batman tales were known by relatively few outside of Japan until award-winning designer Chipp Kidd's 2008 book, Bat-Manga!: The Secret History of Batman in Japan, introduced us to a whole new generation of Batman fans.
