DescriptionNeal Adams and Vince Colletta - The Brave and the Bold #81, page 4 Original Art (DC, 1968). Neal Adams took the opportunity of a brief assignment on the long-running Brave and Bold series to polish his sinewy, realistic version of Batman, and soon his revisionist take on the Dark Knight had spread to the main Bat-books, and was sweeping the comics industry, transforming the Caped Crusader back into the bold and mysterious crimefighter he'd once been. This spectacular page exemplifies Adams' approach, portraying Batman as a sleek, powerful creature of the night. Vince Colletta lends tight inks to Neal's muscular storytelling, and the result is a classic of the era. The artwork is in Very Good condition, there are two missing paste-ups in the last panel, one of which leaves behind a cut-out hole where a word balloon should be. There is a moderate amount of white-out and punch-holes in the margins, but none of these things detract from the heady experience of a Batman-in-action page by the legendary Adams; pages by Neal from this era are hotly coveted, so don't miss your chance to pick up this Silver Age gem. The art measures 10.5" x 16.25".
