This 20-page story is reprinted from the comic book The Batman Strikes #3. This is an excellent adventure story for younger readers (and older ones too!) who are interested in the exploits of the Batman and his supporting cast. The style of the artwork is heavily influenced by the animated TV / DVD series of DC Comics’ superheroes, and so is likely to be familiar to readers. The story is well-written with a clear storyline, characterisation, and well-described action and problem solving situations. As well as the comic book story, there is a supporting page of writer & artist biographies, a glossary and two pages of Visual Questions and Prompts.

“Outlaw and Disorder” sees criminals being arrested by some Joker impersonating a police officer. Unfortunately for him, his most recent ‘arrest’ was of two burglars who broke into Wayne Manor and stole a necklace that formerly belonged to Bruce Wayne’s mother… A disguised Batman finds his way into the recruiting ‘office’ of a criminal leader who is recruiting thieves, just as the Police raid it, leading to a chase of the Joker – for it is indeed he – by the Batman, which leads into a trap set by the Joker for just this very occasion. Batman finds himself in the Joker’s own jail, where he has been keeping the criminals he has been ‘arresting’ and Batman must fight an army of criminals if he is to bring the Joker to justice!

The ‘original’ Batman comic books are reprinted in both colour and black-and white (and suitable for home colouring-in). They are no less suitable for younger readers than these more modern stories aimed at the same age group as the originals were.

This one didn't do anything for me. Yes, it is aimed at the little kids but that doesn't mean it has to be dull. You have your basic Joker steals from Batman (oh no, his mother's necklace was taken), then the Bat tracks him down and they have a bit of a fight and you-know-who wins. Not feeling any Bat love for this one It is, however, perfectly suitable for the little ones, 10 and younger, as long as cartoon punching and fisticuffs doesn't bother you. This is a reinforced library edition of the 3rd issue of 50 comics. The first 21 are available in digital format.
