Highlights from The Brave and the Bold #115, by Bob Haney and Jim Aparo:
Jim Aparo at the height of his powers; note the pretty obvious Neil Adams inspiration:
Have you ever wondered what goes on inside Batman's head? The Atom knows...
The Atom learns a hard lesson about controlling Batman zombie mech!
Ray Palmer gets in on a little action as well, as Batman finally falls.
As per tradition, the friendly farewell between our two heroes. Sort of.
Theme: "Batman: The Brave and the Bold" by Andy Sturmer.

Bonus clips from: "The Dark Knight Theme" by Hans Zimmer; and "Batman: The Movie" by Leslie H. Martinson, starring the late great Adam West.

Chris Sims had fun with this comic some time ago:


Can I say it? I miss Bob Haney. We need more writers (not a lot, but some) who embrace nonsense and know how to run with it.

The first comic I ever sent a letter to!

Well, a postcard. I complained that the image on the cover never happened anywhere in the comic. (I didn't find out about "artistic license" until a bit later.)

Anon: The ISB article was the first time I ever heard of this story. I was real happy Bass chose it for an episode!

Joe: These days, I'm real happy what's on the covers doesn't find its way into the story. Or else it'd be all pin-ups all the time. Oh wait... Guess it depends on the series.
