    Neal Adams Batman #251 Page 9 Original Art (DC, 1973). In the ultra-classic yarn, "The Joker's Five-Way Revenge," the Clown Prince of Crime is back in Gotham -- and he's going to make everyone pay. Beginning in Batman #251, with "The Joker's Five-Way Revenge," the Joker returned to his roots as a homicidal maniac who murders people on a whim -- while enjoying battles of wits with Batman. The story began a trend where the Joker was used more sparingly as a central character. O'Neil said his idea was "simply to take it back to where it started. I went to the DC library and read some of the early stories. I tried to get a sense of what Kane and Finger were after." Here, an ex-henchman of the Joker refuses to be put in protective custody (big mistake, as the Joker kills him on the next page). This peak-period page is sure to be a treasured showpiece in the collection of any fan of Adams' Batman. This Bronze Age beauty has an image area of 10" x 15", and the art is in Excellent condition.
