    Description

    Neal Adams - Original Cover Art for Detective Comics #422 (DC, 1972). Featuring the unbeatable combination of Neal Adams and Batgirl, this is, hands down, one of the best comic book covers of the 1970s. Telling the "startling story" of the unmasking of Batgirl, Adams provides one of the more alluring images of the Caped Cutie ever rendered. While the Batgirl figure is pleasingly simple, the mysterious figure in the chair is more classically Adams-esque, with his trademark contrast of heavy blacks with delicate, evocative feathering. Covers like this are the reason Neal Adams is a legend today. The piece retains all its original stats, including all the sidebar artwork, and is in excellent condition. Measures 11.5" x 17.5", with an image area of 10" x 15".
