Discovering Hidden Gems: Batman

One of the pleasures of digging through back-issue discount bins is that you never know what you might find. True, I usually start with a series or two in mind, but sometimes end up with something else as well.

My thinking is that it never hurts to have random Batman issues lying around the apartment.
