About:
The Brave and the Bold was a monthly comic book published by DC Comics. Its first volume ran for 200 issues and lasted from August 1955 to July 1983. The comic was originally an anthology series with stories taking place in the past and featuring characters such as Robin Hood, the Silent Knight, and the Viking Prince. The title was reinvented with issue 25 in September 1959 to try out new characters and concepts, and specifically to gauge the possibility of launching new titles. Issue #25 itself was the first appearance of the Suicide Squad, while issue #28 in March 1960 saw the introduction of the Justice League of America. Some notable artists who worked on the title during this time include Joe Kubert, Ross Andru, and Mike Sekowsky. The Brave and the Bold was retooled somewhat starting with issue 50 as a team-up title between established characters, particularly team-ups between Batman and other heroes. Batman was extremely popular at this time, due in no small part to the ‘60s television series starring Adam West. The title became exclusively a Batman team-up book from issue #74 to its cancellation with issue #200. It was during this period that Neal Adams' versions of Batman and Green Arrow first became popular. The Brave and the Bold was revived as a six-issue limited series starring Green Arrow, The Question, and The Butcher in December 1991, lasting until June 1992. A second limited series was published from October 1999 to March 2000, titled Flash and Green Lantern: The Brave and the Bold. The Brave and the Bold was revived as an ongoing series in April 2007. Like the previous ongoing series, it was a team-up title, although not specifically a Batman team-up title. It featured longer storylines that lasted several issues and featured creators such as Mark Waid, Marv Wolfman and J. Michael Straczynski.
