One more reason…

Neal Adams is better than you.

Well, at least a better artist. I can’t really attest to his breath, good looks, or manner, though I’m sure all are of above average quality at the least.

This cover just strikes an absolute chord as something that would leap of the shelf, be it 1971, 1951 or 2021. Classic and striking cover that makes use of an (obviously) shocking image but gives it enough life and substance that it resonates as opposed to just washes over you.

When I see covers like this, I can only think of how daunting it must be to take over a title like Batman where such artists have already tread and conquered in ways almost unfathomable. Thank you Mr. Adams, thank you.
