Teen Titans #22 - Neal Adams art

Teen Titans v1 #22 dc comic book cover art by Nick CardyTeen Titans v1 #22 dc comic book page art by Neal Adams
Teen Titans v1 #22, 1969 - The Titans continue their fight against inter-dimensional aliens, nicely conveyed by Nick Cardy's arresting cover. Unfortunately, his inks on the interior story fail to do justice to Neal Adams' pencils. Most panels seem incomplete and resemble rough layouts rather than finished pages. Adams' drawings are noticeably lacking in clarity, more so than his previous issues. On the bright side, "The Origin of Wonder Girl" unexpectedly appears as an eight-page addendum. She recalls her earliest childhood memories and subsequent adoption by the Amazons, leading up to her contemporary new look and costume. The artwork by Gil Kane/Nick Cardy is considerably more polished than the main feature. This story was later reprinted in Best of DC #18. This is number 3 of 3 Teen Titans issues with Adams art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Adams or Teen Titans issues. See also this blog's Adams checklist or Top 10 Adams comics.

Arguably the BEST vintage TT cover done.

There were a few outstanding ones in the 20s, but this one surpasses them all...!!

I need a 16"x20" of this matted/framed.
