    Neal Adams Detective Comics #418 Cover Creeper Original Art (DC, 1971). Neal Adams draws a fantastic version of the Ditko-created Creeper on this cover. His dynamic Batman is top notch as well! It's no wonder this staggering talent is a fan-favorite and much sought-after artist. It is interesting to note that his original lettering on the billboard (under the "Creeper") was removed and placed in a starburst balloon on the printed version. This original art page has a printed logo overlay for presentation purposes. By the way, this is dubbed "the Return of the Creeper" because he hadn't been seen since Justice League of America #70, some 2½ years before this December 1971 issue. Produced in ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 10.5" x 15". Signed by Adams in the lower right image area. Logo and all production text are recreated on a printed overlay for presentation purposes. In Excellent condition.
