Batman #400 - Joe Kubert, Bernie Wrightson, John Byrne art


Batman v1 #400, 1986 - Reaching a landmark in DC Comics, this giant 400th issue boasts an introduction by Stephen King and a bevy of great artists throughout. A prison break results in the escape of multiple super-villains, which drives Batman and Robin into action. Joe Kubert is tasked with illustrating one of the chapters, but his loose, spontaneous approach seems less suited for the copper age. John Byrne's opening splash and Bernie Wrightson's single page pin-up fare better, despite their differing styles.Other artists in this issue include Arthur Adams, George Perez, Brian Bolland and more. See today's posts or more Kubert or Batman issues. See also this blog's Kubert checklist.
