Detective Comics v1 #395, 1970 - Traveling in Mexico, the Batman discovers a wealthy young couple who defy the ravages of aging. After several tantalizing covers, Neal Adams draws his first Batman tale of the series. In contrast to the campy television show of the same era, the artist revives the Batman's original, darker interpretation from the 1940s. Like his eye-catching cover, Adams' story art brings a newfound realism and sophistication to the character (see interior page below). This story was later reprinted in Saga of Ra's Al Ghul #2. Other artists in this issue Murphy Anderson and Gil Kane.

  1. This story was a religious experience when I read it in 1972, as a 12 year old. I found it in the compilation "Batman; From the 30's through the 70's". Adams version of Batman was the apotheosis to me, the ultimate end of the stylistic progression, past which no further growth was necessary or desired. From then on, every issue of every comic he drew was my holy grail.
