Professor turned criminal Jonathan Crane specialises in fear. He knows how to take a simple phobia and turn it into a life-threatening syndrome. Since his introduction, the Scarecrow has been one of the Dark Knight's most difficult foes to defeat...

Scarecrow Tales consists of eight stories by some of the best known Batman writers and artists charting Scarecrow's dastardly deeds from his earliest appearance in the '60 to more recent tales.

The first tale explains Scarecrow's origins and his first encounter with Batman and the Boy Wonder. Scarecrow is well know for his working relationship with the Joker and Batman fans will be pleased to hear that there are stories that see both of Batman's foes pitting their wits against the Dark Knight.

This is an interesting addition to the Batman range, and one I'm hoping that will spawn further versions featuring other Batman foes that are a little less well known than Joker, Penguin, Catwoman or Riddler. I'd really love to see collections that feature Clay Face, Killer Croc, Mad Hatter and Two Face.

This is certainly one collection that serious Batman fans will want to own.
