POWER RECORDS: Batman 8155


I've been on the hunt for DC and Marvel Power Records for a long time now. They aren't so easy to happen upon. I mean sure, I can scour eBay looking for every one that was ever printed but that's not as much fun. There is something rewarding about the search, about finding a highly sought after collectable, a rare edition of some vinyl, or a hard to find silver age, or golden age comic at a swap meet or yard sale. You never know what you're going to find if you're willing to look hard enough.

For instance, this Power Records classic was found at my local Salvation Army. I picked it up new, still wrapped in it's cellophane snuggie for a mere five or six bucks. Batman (8155) is a compilation of four previously released stories that were originally sold separately and accompanied with a comic book. In typical Power Records fashion, the comic was to be read as the record played. These stories are "Stacked Cards", "The Scarecrow's Mirage", "The Challenge Of The Catwoman", and "If Music Be The Food Of Death".

More often than not, the comic book artists, writers, and voice actors were never credited. However the fine people at Peter Pan Records did supply the writers of the four Batman (8155) stories.
Joey Lapidos wrote "Stacked Cards"
Joan Wile wrote "If Music Be The Food of Death"
E.Nelson Bridwell wrote "The Scarecrow's Mirage"
E.Nelson Bridwell wrote "Challenge of the Catwoman"
For your consideration, I have included below each of the Batman (8155) stories, complete with Intro and Outro theme music.
