Batman v1 #243, 1972 - Continuing an international storyline involving Ras Al Ghul, the Batman travels to Switzerland to confront his foe. Neal Adams' cover captures a ritualistic duel to the death, related to the story's opening scene. All story pages are exquisitely drawn, but the first five pages (including the one shown above) are especially strong. Skillfully composed and sequenced, Adams ends the tale with stunning, large panel depictions of a newly resurrected Ras Al Ghul. Dick Giordano, a frequent collaborator, does a reliably credible job with the inks. This story was later reprinted in Limited Collectors' Edition #C-51. See today's posts or more Adams or Batman issues. See also this blog's Adams checklist, Top 10 Adams comics or an original page from this issue.
