Batman #234 - Neal Adams art & cover

Batman v1 #234, 1971 - Batman's old adversary Two-Face returns, looking for a hidden cache of gold doubloons. His golden age-era origin from Detective Comics #66 is retold, along with his incarceration, re-introduction into society and return to crime. The villain's maniacal, oversized face is prominently displayed on Neal Adams' cover. The story pages are adeptly drawn and laid out, focusing on the two main characters. The ending is anti-climactic, but Adams' opening splash of the Batman crouching in a swamp is eerily compelling. This story was later reprinted in Best of DC #14. Other artists in this issue include Carmine Infantino, Joe Giella and Irv Novick.
