Batman vs. The Joker! 1975 Albert Bigley Original Comic Art! "BASHH!!!!" DC Comics?!

Another titanic blast from my past! Let's look to 1975, and this huge (around 11 by 17) illo, featuring a super-violent scene of Batman socking it to the evil Joker! In fact, the Caped Crusader slugs the crime clown so mightily, it seems to lift the villain (and his car) right off the ground! And, how about that detailed background, full of innocent gawkers, impotent policemen, and Batman-boosting billboards? What do you expect from a 10-year-old me?! Click to enlarge!

BONUS! Click below to see some of my inspirations for the above dynamic drawing! This line of panoramic puzzles came out in the mid-70s, all spotlighting large horizontal renderings!
