BATMAN 252! Original 1973 Nick Cardy Cover Art! The Spook! DC Comics!

Yet another great one from the foremost DC Comics artist of the 70s-Nick Cardy! Here we see him bring his skills to bear on the cover to BATMAN #252, from 1973! Nick was able to combine the "mid-60s Batman look" with the then-current "creature of the night" darker version!  This was also the period where DC was pushing mysteries and crime drama in the BATMAN book, and Nick could pull off the murky and spooky atmosphere like no other artist! Wow! Click to enlarge!
