Detective Comics #438 - Walt Simonson art, Joe Kubert reprint

Detective Comics v1 #438, 1974 - Christine St. Clair briefs her Interpol boss on Manhunter's exploits, convincing him to continue further investigation. In his second back-up story of the series, Walt Simonson continues to employ a distinctive textural approach. His layouts, including his configurations of small panels, continues to be innovative (see interior page below). This story was later reprinted in Manhunter #1 and Manhunter Special Edition #1. Simonson's art looks especially contemporary next to the abundance of reprinted material (the best of which is "The Men Who Moved the World", a Joe Kubert Hawkman tale from Brave and the Bold #44). Other artists in this issue include Jim Aparo and Michael Kaluta (cover). This is number 2 of 11 Detective Comics issues with Simonson art and/or covers.
