Great Covers

Can you imagine seeing a cover like this Dick Sprang BATMAN piece on a comic book today? Rather than focusing on a perplexing crime, or a mission of vengeance, or an inescapable doom-trap, this cover instead concerns itself with Batman and Robin having fun by taking a ride on some 19th century-style bicycles. It’s a pretty incongruous image, and I have no idea why the editors thought this might be a cover that wold make readers flock to this issue. But that bold yellow background pops really nicely.
