What is the story of Batman?

Burgan, Michael (author.). Murray, Jake, (illustrator.).

Summary

Summary: "Bruce Wayne, a wealthy American philanthropist and business owner, and Batman, his crime-fighting alter ego, have been entertaining audiences since 1939. The character was so popular after appearing in Detective Comics that DC Comics decided to give Batman a comic book of his own. In doing so, they created one of the company's most successful franchises.

This book shows readers why this superhero with no superpowers is so beloved around the world"--
