Batman v1 #227, 1970 - Capitalizing on a short-lived trend during the late 1960s, this Batman cover uses a gothic romance theme. Mysterious and haunting, the scene is beautifully drawn. Artist Neal Adams freely borrows the layout from Detective Comics #31 (1939), maintaing the tone but opting for a more contemporary look. Other artists in this issue include Mike Esposito, Irv Novick and Dick Giordano. See today's posts or more Adams or Batman issues. See also this blog's Adams checklist or Top 10 Adams comics.
