This is a pretty striking BATMAN cover, especially for the era. It’s a good use of graphic design combined with a limited palette to achieve an effect. It’s subtle, but you really can’t miss that white-held portrait of Batman superimposed over the night’s activities.the strong red-orange backgrounds giving the whole cover a bit of punch. The piece was done by Paris Cullins, whom I don’t tend to think of as a particularly noteworthy cover artist, nor an artist associated with Batman, so this piece represents a strong hit from an unexpected quarter. Inker Dick Giordano, who was also the boss while simultaneously having a long relationship with the Caped Crusader, keeps everything on-model in his finish. As the Direct Sales marketplace opened up in the early 1980s, DC upped their cover game throughout their line, with some very interesting results.
