These 1939 novels introduced the caped crime buster whose adventures paralleled Batman's, and inspired Two-Face's origin (written by Norman A. Daniels as "G. Wayman Jones" for future BATMAN and SUPERMAN editor Mort Weisinger).
First, doomed to darkness by a murderous acid attack, D.A. Tony Quinn makes darkness his weapon with "The Brand of the Black Bat." Then, "Murder Calls the Black Bat" into a deadly war against corruption as Tony Quinn battles to prevent the biggest jewel haul of the century!
