Now that the new series is out, and I actually plan on buying it (for a while at least. Issue 1 was pretty good.), I was wondering what the best Brave and the Bold issues are\were? The best team ups? The all-time classics. I only read a few in some trades, but one that I read, the Autobiography of Bruce Wayne, is probably my favorite Batman issue\story. So excluding that one, what are the best? Thanks.

Ones I like ( I came late to the series)

B&B 177 - Batman and Elongated Man - A neat little murder mystery

B%B 178 - Batman and the Creeper against the Paper Man (reportedly Jim Aparo's favourite issue of his run on B&B)

B&B 182 - Batman and the Earth 2 Robin. Feature E1 Batman meeting the (deceased on his Earth Batwoman) and the E2 Robin and Huntress meeting the (deceased on their Earth, Batman)

B&B 183 - Batman and the Riddler - A fun romp with two of the most reluctant partners in the series run.

B&B 191 - Batman and the Joker investigate the murder of the Penguin, for which Joker is being framed.

B&B 200 - Batman E1 and Batman E2 deal with the same criminal, 40 year apart.

A great one, to be sure.

I loved the Creeper team-up to fight Hellgramite that's in the Showcase of these tales. Ditko's Creeper was really something...

Great, great story, and the only way I ever see Hugo Strange going out. \:\)

I really wish I could remember the issue with Hal and Batman teaming up to reveal which of the Guardians was Sinestro in disguise. That was a great one.

It was a 2-parter.

Though the issue you mention was drawn by the legendary Neal Adams. I was lucky enough to pick up a readers' copy for cheap at a con.

I always liked the Plastic Man vs. Ruby Ryder stories, including the Batman-Metamorpho-Plastic Man two parter and the Batman-Metal Men-Green Arrow story that finished off Ruby's appearances.

The fake-out team-up of Joker and Batman, which turned out to be a deathtrap for Batman, natch, way back in the day was a fine issue as well; I wonder how many readers of Shadow of the Bat #38-9 or 81 knew that Wilde Norton was referring to the events of that long-ago issue?

And while it's more important for Green Arrow than for Batman, the classic "The Senator Has Been Shot" isa fine tale.

I'm tickled enough to have it in black and white now. Great story, and that Adams art does sing. (By "Ditko's Creeper", I was referring more to his original schtick, rather than the more recent takes. Although I DID love Kaminski's version...)

Oh yeah... Ruby's a great villainess in her own way.

It always seemed to me that Bruce's role there was a little strange, but it is a seminal GA tale.
