The Penguin Club: First Appearance!

Hello everybody,
This month we’ll be looking at the very first appearance of the Penguin.
The Penguin first appear in Detective comics #58 in December of 1941. The comic book came out just few days before Pearl Harbor was attacked.
The Penguin would return a month later to commit another crime in Detective comics #59.

Please feel free to leave a comment, let me know what you think of the First appearance of The Penguin, which of the two comics did you like the best? :penguin_starehqtas:


Just in case we need further evidence that Bruce Wayne is a jerk:

Earlier in the comic, he teaches Dick to keep these comments to himself, so at least there’s that.

I thought I’d give my point of view of Penguin first appearance, I thought the story was good and it was a great way to introduce the villain.
I’m thrill that they brought him back a month later so we can learn more about him, and it was a chance for the character to grow and develop on what he’ll become.:face_with_monocle::penguin:
