    Neal Adams - The Brave and the Bold #80, Batman and the Creeper Cover Original Art (DC, 1968). By this issue of The Brave and the Bold, Batman was the anchor of the title, especially since Neal Adams was drawing it, and the new Steve Ditko creation, the Creeper, was into the third issue of his short-lived series, Beware the Creeper. Batman and the Creeper battle the freakish half-man, half-insect, Hellgrammite, in this cover illustration, brought to menacing life by Neal Adams' skilled hand. It's pure Adams, at his best! The art has an image area of 10" x 15". There is some glue staining, especially at the upper left corner (from a missing logo stat paste-up), and the attached paste-ups exhibit a bit of aging; otherwise, the condition is Very Good. This lot includes a copy of the comic book and a hand painted color guide for the cover (which has an image area of 7" x 10.25"). Although the guide has some overall aging, its condition is Very Good.
