Brave and the Bold v1 #93, 1971 - After a near fatal encounter with a thug, the Batman is convinced to take a long overdue break. A trip to a remote part of Ireland seems the ticket, but an ancient legend ends the hero's respite. Cain, the caretaker of House of Mystery, humorously narrates this gothic tale. From city slum to ocean liner to medieval castle, Neal Adams depicts each setting with great skill. Every panel is meticulously drawn and carefully paced. Among the highlights: Bruce Wayne's rescue of a lad falling overboard (page 5) and the storm-drenched image of a wraith (page 14). Toward the story's end, a few pencilled panels convey the viewpoint of the Batman in his drug-induced state. Adams' last complete story for the series is also his finest. This story was later reprinted in Limited Collectors Edition #C-59. This is number 11 of 17 Brave and the Bold issues with Adams art and/or covers (not including reprints). See today's posts or more Adams or Brave and the Bold issues.
