Yet again, I must thank Derek Wolfford whoin creating the BFAG has gone above and bat-yond in helping raise awareness in grand styleof the legacy of Bill Finger. And as a designer, he has also helped me personally: here (Bill-related) and here (not).
Always bears repeating: if you’re a Batman fan, you’re a Bill Finger fan.
And if you’re a Bill Finger fan, you, too, owe a debt of gratitude to the Bill Finger Appreciation Group.
Growing up, two of my favorite comic book series were The Brave and the Bold (which teamed Batman with another hero or heroes) and DC Comics Presents (same deal with Superman). Love me a team-up. And especially love me an unconventional team-up.
Therefore, here is a gallery of team-ups outside of those series(or any other ongoing monthlies). Most are one-shot stories but a few are miniseries. Some are typical (Flash/Green Lantern) but many are not (Shazam!/Katana). None are intercompany crossovers (Superman/Spider-Man) or superhero/non-superhero crossovers (Superman/Bugs Bunny).

I will also mention a few quirky team-ups that were ongoing series or parts of an ongoing series. I guess for me what it comes down to is this: if two character names (or, even better, logos) are on the cover, I’m in.
