The Classic BRAVE AND THE BOLD #197 Leads DC’s DOLLAR COMICS in January

Alan Brennert and Joe Staton’s brilliant story is one of four Dollar Comics on the way in the new year…

DC’s got a really cool line-up of Dollar Comics coming in January — led by The Brave and the Bold #197, by Alan Brennert and Joe Staton.

The 1983 story — The Autobiography of Bruce Wayne! — is an outright Bronze Age classic that chronicles the romance of the Earth-Two Batman and Catwoman.

But there’s more: There will also be Dollar Comics reprinting Harley Quinn’s first comics appearance, a critically acclaimed Huntress story — and even the debut of Black Canary’s very ’80s costume.

(The first one ties into the launch of Tom King’s upcoming Batman/Catwoman series. The other three play off DC’s new Birds of Prey title premiering in January, as well as February’s BOP movie starring Margot Robbie.)

Dig the newly released official solicitation blurbs for each:
