A series of massive Trade paperback collections in DC's inexpensive Showcase format that reprint stories of Batman from his first "new look" appearance in Detective Comics #327 in the 1960s.
Showcase Presents is a line of black-and-white paperback books published by DC Comics. Much like Marvel Comics' Essential Marvel volumes, each book usually includes over 500 pages of reprints, primarily from the Silver Age and is usually devoted to one character, reprinting all of their adventures in sequential order via cover date, or occasionally to a specific title rather than individual. The reprint line started in October 2005 with the releases of Showcase Presents: Green Lantern Volume 1 and Showcase Presents: Superman Volume 1.
The full list of collected editions is:
Volume 1 (Detective Comics #327-342 and Batman #164-174)
Volume 2 (Detective Comics #343-358 and Batman #175-188)
Volume 3 (Detective Comics #359-375 and Batman #189-202)
Volume 4 (Detective Comics #376-390 and Batman #202-215)
Volume 5 (Detective Comics #391-407 and Batman #216-228)
Volume 6 (Detective Comics #408-426 and Batman #229-244)
