    When the two Superman 75 collections were released, I was surprised at the Lois Lane hardcover. I wondered what would be released with the Batman 75 hardcover. Obviously options are limited, but the Joker? Yes, he's Batman's greatest nemesis. Yes, some of the material reprinted here is essential Batman reading. Since Lois got a hardcover collection, I was thinking that Robin would get one. But once again, the boy/teen wonder gets the short end of the stick. Since Robin and the Joker first appeared in 1940 (so, that's 74 years, not 75) how about a Commissioner Gordon 75 HC? I just think there's more options in a Robin 75 or Jim Gordon 75 collection in terms of material never before reprinted when compared to material focused on the Joker.
