Batman Family #18 - Jim Starlin cover

Jim Starlin
Batman Family v1 #18, 1978 - Jim Starlin successfully fits all the issue's characters in a layout that's both manageable and aesthetically pleasing. Batman and Robin are logically placed in the most prominent position. The finest details are relegated to the focal point: a pair of demonic hands emerging from the sewers. An inset of the Huntress appears below, announcing her inclusion to the series. Starlin, in a humorous touch, extends the sewer's ooze into her frame. Other artists in this issue include Juan Ortiz, Dave Hunt, Danny Bulanadi, Romeo Tanghal, Bob Layton, Vince Colletta, Michael Golden and Joe Staton. This is number 2 of 3 Batman Family issues with Starlin art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Starlin or Batman Family issues.
