Great Covers – BATMAN #205

The sketch for this Irv Novick BATMAN cover had to have been done by Carmine Infantino, who had been brought on staff by DC in the late 1960s to punch up the graphics of their line, which had grown stale over the years. It’s a masterful cover–that tilted ground line, the extreme close-up on the lead assassin’s face, allowing Batman and Robin to be seen reflected in his blind man’s glasses, the impending strike of the fired missiles. Even the fact that the logo is on a similar tilt as the image adds to the effect.
