It's amazing the things you discover reflecting on the works of one artist during a specific period of time in the publishing history of a comic book. Growing up, I read Batman comics from all eras of the Dark Knight's long career. I remember checking out this monstrous hardcover book from my elementary school library that featured reprints of Batman comics from the 1930s all the way through the 1970s. One of the comic book covers that stood out in my young mind at the time and stayed with me as one of my favorites was by an artist I now in my old age have come to respect and hold dear to my heart named Neal Adams. My eight-year-old self would have never guessed that at age 40 I would be reading "Batman Illustrated by Neal Adams Volume 2" and see that cover again.
