DescriptionThe Batman (Columbia, R-1954). Fine/Very Fine. Lobby Card Sets of 4 (11 Sets) & Title Card & Lobby Cards (2) ((11" X 14"). Featured in this fabulous collection of all but one set of the reissue chapter sets from the 1943 serial and are the complete four card sets to the chapter. Chapter #2 set is missing. Chapter #3 has only three cards. All of the other sets are complete. Most of the sets are in exceptional condition other than a few examples. Columbia's 15-episode serial was the first screen appearance of DC Comics' Caped Crusader. Here Batman (Lewis Wilson) and Robin, the Boy Wonder (Douglas Croft), battle Dr. Daka (J. Carrol Naish), a Japanese mastermind of a wartime espionage/sabotage group. Daka has an arsenal of weapons including a radium-powered death ray, a classic alligator pit to dispose of enemies, and the ability to turn men into electronic zombies.
