Batman! Neal Adams! 1971 BRAVE AND THE BOLD Cover Art! DC Comics!

Here is a beautiful cover for a 1971 issue of the long-running Batman team-up book, BRAVE AND THE BOLD, drawn by that comic art master, Neal Adams! Neal was doing a great deal of work for DC, mostly on a newly-revitalized "creature of the night" Batman, and this scene is very emblematic of the dramatic new look he brought to the character! Neal also imbued in Batman a sense of athleticism, grace and an always ready-to-spring feeling of movement! Note the loss of a few text elements from the now-40 year old (gasp) cover art! Do you recall who the mystery co-star was for this ish? Click to enlarge!
