Batman: The Dark Knight Archives Volume 8 reprints the Batman stories contained in Batman #32-#37, originally appearing during late 1945 to late 1946.
Therein, you will discover exceptionally valuable treats:
a. Robin's Expanded Origin. This feature in Batman #32 is a direct continuation of Robin's 1940 introduction in Detective Comics #38, focusing on deeper psychological factors in his development.
b. Batcave's Famous Addition. Of the countless souvenirs in the Batcave collection, the most famous are the giant penny replica and the mechanical dinosaur, the latter acquisition dramatized in Batman #35.
c. Adventures of Alfred. Alfred, the famous butler/handyman/detective for the Dynamic Duo, had his own enjoyable series beginning in Batman #22. This formal anecdotage concludes with Batman #36, but he will continue to frequently appear in the Batman saga.
d. A Christmas Tale. Issue #34 includes an adventure of three cynical men chosen by Batman to each play Santa in a children's hospital, an orphanage, and a children's theater. These men's hearts are warmed and so will yours.
That's not all. Catwoman in Batman #35 dons the costume that became her most famous outfit, and there are appearances throughout the book by fan favorites Joker, Penguin, et al. Also the art quality both by the original artists and in the tome's reproduction is exquisite.
