The Untold Legend of Batman

Issue one was penciled by John Byrne, who in 1980 was one of the most in-demand artists working in comics, with the best-selling X-Men (written by Chris Claremont) shaking up the industry with good sales and an enthusiastic fan-base. A kind of vanity project, "Untold Legend of Batman" was a chance for DC Comics stalwart Paul Levitz to pen a tale meant exactly for John Byrne's talents. When Byrne couldn't deliver for issue 2 & 3 of the mini-series, Jim Aparo took over, he the preferred DC Comics Batman utility player who had jumped in and out of Batman titles whenever it was needed (though he spent most of his time, issue after issue, plowing through Bob Haney scripts for Brave and the Bold). All of the covers were drawn by José Luis García-López with Dick Giordano (another DC Comics utility man and an editor) doing the inks for issue s#2 and #3.
