The First Time I Saw Batman

The first time I saw Batman I was 5 years old, at a newsstand in the spring of 1960, looking at the cover of this issue of World Finest. I was intrigued to see that Superman wasn't the world's only superhero, and by the fact that Batman and Robin seemed remarkably effective and undaunted for people who lacked Superman's vast array of powers. I was also delighted by the bright, contrasting colors of all their costumes. I would be thrilled to learn shortly thereafter that Batman and Robin and their own solo adventures in two comic book titles. Superman, Batman, Robin, Tommy Tomorrow and Green Arrow — all in color for a dime.
