Great Covers – BRAVE AND THE BOLD #108

This whole issue of THE BRAVE AND THE BOLD is loony, and it all begins with this Jim Aparo cover. Not only are Sgt. Rock and Batman in the same story (despite the different eras in which their adventures typically take place), but the Rock is firing ineffectively at a figure who casts a demonic shadow, while Batman comes to the rescue with a crucifix. It’s this odd assortment of elements that makes this cover a grabber–you need to read this if only to find out just what the hell is going on here! The caption with the title is the capper to the whole thing.

One thought on “Great Covers – BRAVE AND THE BOLD #108

  1. I’m surprised Sgt. Rock teamed up with Batman as many as 3 times or more in B&B. I think Neal Adams’ 1st published Batman story was one of these team-ups. Neal gives a very respectful nod of his ink pen to Joe Kubert’s style when rendering Rock. I think they meet in two different time periods in that same story. During WW2, and then again in the present, and Frank comments on how Bruce, using an alias, hasn’t aged a day. Maybe a Haney-ism.
