75 Greatest Friends and Foes of Batman: Villains #30-26
27. Mr. Zsasz
Created by Alan Grant and Norm Breyfogle, Mr. Zsasz was an instant classic as soon as he debuted in Shadow of the Bat, with one of the best visual hooks of any Batman foe…
That’s about ALL he has going for him, but goddamn, that’s an awesome hook!
26. Joe Chill
Created by Bill Finger, Bob Kane and Charles Paris, the dude KILLED BATMAN’S PARENTS! That’s enough to make Batman’s top villains list, I would say.
I love how awesome Finger’s story is of their first meeting since that day…
How freakin’ amazing is that sequence? Dude DIES before he can tell Batman’s secret because HE caused Batman! That is so damned clever by Finger. And some of Kane’s best artwork from the time period.
