Detective Comics #407 - Neal Adams art & cover

Neal Adams
Detective Comics v1 #407, 1971 - Man-Bat makes his third appearance, seeking to marry his longtime fiancee despite his metamorphosis. Neal Adams draw his saga with relish and commitment. His formidable pencils are paired with Dick Giordano's capable inks. Layout and pacing are thoughtfully planned, including varied panels and multiple viewpoints. Page 4's depiction of a fully transformed Man-Bat gone mad (see interior page below) is among the story's highlights. This story, marking the character's third appearance, was later reprinted in Man-Bat v2 #1. Other artists in this issue include Gil Kane and Vince Colletta. This is number 18 of 36 Detective Comics issues with Adams covers and 7 of 10 Detective issues with Adams art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Adams or Detective Comics issues.
