Great Covers

Impossible to say for certain who drew this iconic beauty. It’s signed by Bob Kane, and he may have even laid it out. But it’s more likely that assistants and ghosts such as Jerry Robinson and George Roussos had a greater hand in it. Either way, you couldn’t ask for a more classic image to kick off the BATMAN series, That yellow background fairly screams off the racks and the dark hues of Batman’s costume pop perfectly against it (as does Robin, although liberty has been taken, changing his cape to green here).
