The Batman Strikes! 1977 Albert Bigley Original Art! DC Comics?

Another "gem" from my vault of childhood drawings! This time, take a look at this 1977 pencilled piece, a shameless cop of the then-current (and very exciting) Batman as seen in the pages of DETECTIVE COMICS! The great new art team of Marshall Rogers and Terry Austin was beginning their still-heralded run on the Dark Knight, adding a ton of mood and mystery to the strip, and it certainly wowed a 12-year-old me! Click below to enlarge!

COMICS #468! Art by Marhsall Rogers and Terry Austin (who would one day
 ink my own pro comics work)!
