Batman has fought vampires, gangsters, aliens, Julius Caesar, a giant chicken.  (Or was that Peter Griffin?)   Heck, the Batman family has fought pretty much everyone!

But surely not EVERYONE, you say?

    This is why I mine the treasures of the back issue bins, to find fun treasures like this. What issue is this from?

      This is from Batman Family #3, from 1976. This one was written by Eliot S! Maggin…

        My aunt just bought me a copy of Batman Family #1 at a thrift store the other day for $5.00. Along with 3 other first issues from 1973 and 1975.

    I remember that issue. I think at the time I was one of the only people reading comics in my area that got the Monty Python joke.

    Now that was definitely something completely different.

    Omg… I just saw that episode yesterday, as a matter of coincidence. I think I find the Spanish Inquisition to be the funnier of the two. :D
