    Neal Adams and Dick Giordano - Original Cover Art to The Brave and The Bold #83 (DC, 1969). This stunning cover bears all the trademarks of Neal Adams' superlative work for DC, including bold, powerful figures, thrilling composition, and tight, realistic rendering. The octo-squid is a classic Adams monster, and the depiction of our two heroes in heaps of trouble -- Aquaman struck with somnambulism and Batman lashed to an anchor, rapidly running out of oxygen -- generates profound unease in the reader. Dick Giordano was easily Adams' best DC inker, and his bold lines bring out the power in Neal's expert penciling. Sixties' Adams covers are always highly coveted, and this beauty should prove no exception. Excellent condition overall, with very light use of white-out; the board shows very light rippling from being stored in a humid environment. 11.5" x 16.5".
