Batman Illustrated

 B4PS   (DC, 2004-2006)

™ and © DC Comics, Inc.

Aside from creator Bob Kane, artist Neal Adams’ work has had one of the most profound effects on the character of the Batman. Starting as just a cover artist, Adams’ style soon became the definitive version of the Dark Knight Detective, shaping the course of Batman’s career for decades. At a time when TV sitcom fame had reduced the character to comical and campy antics, Adams, with the aid of writers such as Denny O’Neil and Frank Robbins and inker Dick Giordano, revitalized the hero as a grim, night-prowling detective.

This hardcover series reproduces all of Adams’ Batman work, including covers, and presents them in chronological order. With stories from Batman-related titles such as The Brave and the Bold, Detective Comics, and World’s Finest Comics, it also includes Adams’ interpretations of other great DC characters, including Enemy Ace, Batgirl, Robin, the Phantom Stranger, Man-Bat, and Deadman.
