World's Finest Comics #176 - Neal Adams art & cover

Neal Adams
World's Finest Comics v1 #176, 1968 - An alien policeman tracks down a fugitive from his home planet, seeking the help of Batman and Supergirl. Meanwhile, the fugitive proclaims his innocence and gains the trust of Superman and Batgirl. In his second of two tales for World's Finest, Neal Adams does a superlative job illustrating this tale of competing super-teams. His renditions of these iconic heroes are further enhanced by his masterful perspective and foreshortening skills (see interior page below). As with the previous issue, his layouts are kinetic and engaging. Unfortunately, Adams' minimal cover pales in comparison to his interiors. This story was later reprinted in Super-Team Family #3. See today's posts or more Adams or World's Finest issues. See also this blog's Adams checklist or Top 10 Adams comics.
