DescriptionNeal Adams and Dick Giordano - Detective Comics #419 Cover Original Art (DC, 1972). Long before the gritty, ultra-realistic style that is currently status quo in comics became so popular, penciler Neal Adams and inker Dick Giordano introduced their own brand of realism, opening the door wide for all those who followed. And consequently they changed the way we looked at our heroes. Their work with Batman gave us a whole new perspective on the Dark Knight legend and their numerous covers together on the Detective Comics title were spectacular. Here is a great cover from the early '70s that is sure to thrill. "The Slaying Statues of Batman" features a man dropping off the end of a pier, weighted down by five Batman statues. The detail is terrific with a lot of texture and delicious inkwork. The overall paper size is 11.5" x 17", with an image area of 10" x 15". The art is in Excellent condition and also included in this lot is a copy of Detective Comics #419. This is your chance to get a fabulous cover by these two industry giants.
