Strange Adventures v1 #209 featuring Deadman, 1968 - Unknown to most, the famed aerialist Eagle commits daring thefts in between circus performances. Neal Adams opens the tale with a old man silently replacing a circus poster. The scenes are devoid of captions or dialogue, relying on the visuals to set the tone and establish the characters. Subsequent pages are beautifully rendered and carefully composed. The most breathtaking moments occur midway through the story, as Deadman (occupying a circus hand's body) and the Eagle struggle atop a towering ferris wheel. Adams' center spread imposes a bird's eye view of the combatants, complete with dizzyingly perspective. The artist's longest Deadman story to date is also his finest thus far on the series. This is number 4 of 15 Strange Adventures issues with Adams art and/or covers.
