Batman v1 #237, 1971 - Set in Rutland, Vermont during their annual Halloween Festival, the heroes track a murderer dressed as the grim reaper. Although too many elements mar Neal Adams' cover, the same scene works more successfully on an interior splash (page 8). Superbly drawn throughout, the artist shows a mastery of pacing in addition to his rendering skills. Highlights include keenly designed panel sequences of Halloween parade floats (pages 2-3) and a car-bomb explosion (page 18). Interestingly, this Denny O' Neil story includes input from science fiction author Harlan Ellison and artist Bernie Wrightson. This story was later reprinted in Limited Collectors' Edition #C-52 and Best of DC #51. Rounding out the book is a Batman story reprinted from Detective Comics #37.
