Summary
"Over the years, many artists have defined the look of one of the most iconic characters in popular culture-- DC Comics' Batman. Of all of them, perhaps the most influential is Neal Adams, who began drawing the Caped Crusader just as he was in danger of disappearing into a black hole of TV-inspired campiness and Pop Art oblivion. Adams's art returned Batman to his urban crime roots, putting him back in the shadows and rehibilitating his image for a new generation of fams. Joining Adams in the Batman renaissance was writer Denny O'Neil, who crafted stories to match the look and feel of the Dark Knight Detective's gothic roots. Inker Dick Giordano also helped refine that look, and together the trio set a new standard for Batman comics. Now, for the first time, all of Neal Adams's Batman work -- covers and stories -- is being chronologically collected. This second volume, featuring Adams's contributions from 1967 through 1969, shows the process of introduction, adaptation, and innovation that the young artist brought to this legendary crime-fighter. Along the way, Adams also displays his interpretations of many other DC fixtures, including Enemy Ace and the House of Mystery, as well as his signature character, Deadman. This volume features introductions by Adams and frequent collaborator Dick Giordano." --p.[4] of cover
