Given the on-going mania over all things Batman, I imagine it's just about time for Whistling Jack Smith's "I Was Kaiser Bill's Batman" to be rediscovered and lionized by a certain segment of comics fandom. I breathlessly await the latest issue of one of the "New 52" in which Kaiser Bill instructs Batman to stop Lex Luthor from stealing 40 cakes. That will increase sales tenfold!
But seriously, what in the blue hell does this title even mean? Kaiser Bill? Who? And why is this whistling person his Batman? My questions, they are legion.
