    Glenn Fabry Batman: Vengeance of Bane Special #1 First Appearance of Bane Painted Cover Original Art (DC, 1993). This is the first appearance of a villain who may be a household name once America has seen the new Batman movie! Bane is the sole survivor of the Venom experiments (first revealed in Batman Legends of the Dark Knight #16-20), an attempt to create drug-enhanced killing machines. As a result of these tests, Bane has spent a lifetime as the toughest inmate in the worst prison on the South American island of Santa Prisca where he acquired his berserk strength, a savage, calculating intellect, and an unparalleled megalomania. He ultimately sets his sights on Gotham City, and goes gunning for the Dark Knight. This awesome DC cover featuring one of the great Batman villains has an image area of 9.5" x 14.5", and the art is in Excellent condition. Signed at the lower right. From the Shamus Modern Masterworks Collection.
