Strange Adventures v1 #216 featuring Deadman, 1969 - Nanada Parbat, a hidden eden, is marked for destruction by the League of Assassins. There, Deadman finally meets Rama Kushna, the deity that made him a wandering spirit. His storyline abruptly ends with this issue, but not before Neal Adams produces his best work on the series. From the assassins' technological headquarters to the warm, Shangri-La-like landscapes, the artist shows a contrast of settings. Adams' eerie, monolithic cover is different from the more surrealistic effects inside. Separate panels fuse together to form Deadman's portrait (page 17) and Jim Steranko's influence appears in undulating type (page 13). Though sometimes experimental, the overall work excels on draftsmanship alone. This is number 11 of 15 Strange Adventures issues with Adams art and/or covers.
