Strange Adventures v1 #211 featuring Deadman, 1968 - Following a lead to Mexico, Deadman stumbles upon his own twin brother. When he discovers Cleve's job human trafficking, Boston intervenes on his behalf. The cover's white silhouette suggests a "missing piece" to the killer's identity. Clever in concept but lacking aesthetically. Neal Adams fares better on the interior story with its well-crafted illustrations. His opening splash is particularly memorable, with its tilted (and mildly disorienting) horizon line. This is number 6 of 15 Strange Adventures issues with Adams art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Adams or Strange Adventures issues. See also this blog's Adams checklist or Top 10 Adams comics.
