This weekend marked the 75th anniversary of Batman’s first appearance, in Detective Comics #27, way back in 1939. While there’s lots of interesting news stories about this auspicious event, one of the more fun ones I looked through was Comic Book Resources’ 75 Greatest Batman Covers, as voted on by their readers. The Neal Adams gatefold featured above came in at #43 on the list.
We also happen to have a few Batman comic book covers (and comics) courtesy of Bill’s Comics – these ones feature action figures of the Caped Crusader, and I think they match up pretty well with the drawn version with an artistry of their own. Bill’s cover above is from the start of a three parter, Batman: Curse of the Demon. If you like this one, be sure to check out all of Bill’s Batman comics, all of his comics featured here, and even more at Bill’s own site. Cheers!
