Work in Progress

The Black Bat's original stories have been reprinted several times.  This page will attempt to record where you can find each one, starting with Altus Press and/or Sanctum Books and/or Adventure House's High Adventure books.

Some distinctions:

Altus Press is reprinting the series in order, three at a time, currently releasing somewhere between two and four compilations a year.

Adventure House releases issue of High Adventure periodically (I'm not certain if they're on a regular schedule), some of which include Black Bat stories. The content varies, however. Some books will have two Black Bat stories, some with have one with additional content, etc. I believe most (all?) of those additional stories appeared in Black Book Detective as well.

Sanctum Productions release their Black Bat double novels roughly quarterly and while most volumes will offer stories in order of release, on occasion they will "reach ahead" for a story published at a later date. They include reprints of the The Mask comic book as well, for all intents and purposes being Black Bat material.
