Another biggie! Who doesn't recall this amazing 1974 cover to SUPERMAN #279? Whomped up by that peerless artist, Nick Cardy, here was a rare teaming of Superman with Batman's long-time crime-crushing companion, Batgirl! Need I say that, in addition to Nick being a master at depicting action, depth, and speed, he was also quite swell at delineating the female form? This b/w art page comes from a 70s children's coloring set, which included two other reproduced mammoth covers for keyed-up kids to maul! Click image below to enlarge!
|Note the removal of the large black shaded areas on Batgirl's thighs!|
Did the toy makers think kids needed more "open" areas to color?
They did a pretty sloppy job of re-drawing her legs!
