Previews - January 2009

Each month when the new issue of Previews comes out, I'll be posting any solicitations relevant to the 1950s Batman. This issue's item is not directly related, but does feature an appearance by one of the most notable characters to debut during that period, this blog's namesake Bat-Mite. He'll be appearing in Super Friends, which is part of the Johnny DC line and aimed at young children. I never thought I'd be picking up an issue, but I'll buy anything that features Bat-Mite hi-jinks. Mr. Mxyzptlk will also be making an appearance, so we might see a call-back to their encounters in World's Finest. 

Super Friends #11

Batman's got a fan club! But it's a mischievous fan club of one known as Bat-Mite, and he just can't stand the other Super Friends saving the day alongside Batman. Will the caped crusader be forced to fly solo from now on? Not if Mr. Mxyzptlk can help it!

I know this is an old post, but you should totally pick up SuperFriends. I added it to my pull list so I could get something for my three year old nephew who always wanted to read my comics and loves Batman because I do and it's actually a funny book 80% of the time.

I'll be picking up Super Friends #11 for sure. If I like it enough, I may go back and get the earlier issues.
