Batman Family #17 - Jim Starlin art


Batman Family v1 #17, 1978 -  Jim Starlin opens this issues with an intriguing splash page. The Batman poses almost frighteningly in movie-monster fashion (see interior page below). Deceptively simple in layout, Starlin uses a diminishing sequence of bats to increase depth. The scene is darker in tone than the rest of the book, which features Man-Bat, the Demon, Huntress, Batgirl and Batwoman. This page was later reprinted in Best of DC #51. Other artists in this issue include Don Heck, Bob Wiacek, Vince Colletta, Carl Potts, Frank McLaughlin, Michael Golden, Jim Aparo and Mike Kaluta (cover). This is number 1 of 3 Batman Family issues with Starlin art and/or covers.
