Rare 1969 BATMAN Comic Strips! Nick Cardy and Al Plastino Art! DC Comics!

Talk about rare! Didja know that BATMAN was awarded his own daily comic strip in the mid-60s, coinciding with his blockbuster ABC TV show? Didja know comic art greats like Nick Cardy and Al Plastino provided the stellar artwork for said strip? Didja know these strips (running until the early 70s) have yet to be formally collected in any trade paperback or hardcover? Didja know the original art for these strips (as seen here) is passionately bought and traded among comic art fans today? Didja know that other DC heroes and foes, such as Green Arrow, Aquaman, Riddler, and Poison Ivy made frequent appearances in these adventures? Didja know you could click the images below to enlarge and enjoy them? Oh. You did.
