Frank Robbins "Manbat Over Vegas" Page 1 Splash

Detective Comics #429
November 1972
Published by DC Comics, Copyright DC Comics

Robbins gives sharp articulation to his forms here, and its a standout Batman piece altogether, with his usual heavy blacking, but a more carefully controlled image.

"Manbat over Vegas" tells you everything, and its such a simple approach to telegraphing the story to the reader it makes me wish it was something still in style in modern hero comics. Unfortunately, this isn't the case.
