This Carl Barks story from 1947 introduced the world to (Uncle) Scrooge McDuck.

This is another “unique” Bat-story of the 1950s that shows just why most people disregard this era of the Caped Crusader’s career. Perhaps DC should put out a collection of Weird Tales from Gotham City. It could be filled with all the stupid stories from the 1940s, 50s and 60s such as the one above. It could feature the ‘many strange transformations of Batman, like the stories where he turned into a giant, merman, gorilla etc. There could also be a section on all the many times Batman travelled back in time, fought aliens or met others that he inspired such as Fatman, Batboy, Mogo the Bat-gorilla, Batmite, Ace the Bathound, Batman Jones etc. I’m not sure it would sell many copies although I am sure some people would pick it up just for a laugh.
Here’s another great Golden Age story which focuses on the Joker’s vanity and the fact that he considers himself a great comedian.
This is from Our Gang Comics #4 from 1942 (I think). This is still early in T&J’s career judging by the way they are drawn here.
