My Very Own Bat Hound
Ace the Bat Hound entered the Batman mythos in 1955's Batman #92. And now, thanks to the Batman mask currently available in McDonald's Happy Meals, I have a Bat Hound of my very own. It is my distinct pleasure to introduce Big Boy the Bat Hound to the world. That's him down here and I apologize for the blur in the photo but he was (as usual) rushing off to fight some crime. Round them all up, Big Boy!
(By the way, the beautiful lettering in the story up at the top is the handiwork of Pat Gorden, first wife of beloved Batman artist Dick Sprang. You can read again what I've written about Ms. Gorden over here and here.)
