Even "All Star Batman and Robin," as awful as it was, presented Batman at his very extreme, whereas "Batman: Odyssey" is just a bunch of nonsensical gibberish that fails to come together. You could also argue, since Bruce knows of the Lazarus Pits, his attempts to kill Ra’s are equivalent to throwing the Joker in Arkham. Not everything works, but when Haney hits his stride on a World War II tale or the story of an invulnerable rabble rouser, the results are very good, and the art is superb.

A second teaming of Batman with Superman already shows improvement, with Bates supplying an improved plot and fewer words, while Adams creates great aliens. Having "not left Archie Comics under the best of circumstances", [9] Adams turned to commercial art for the advertising industry. It’s very tough for a character to challenge Bruce on those terms without upsetting the delicate balance of a Batman story arc, and O’Neil does it effortlessly with Ra’s. There’s an entertaining world-travelling tale in “Ghost of the Killer Skies,” which features DC character Enemy Ace.In 1984, Adams founded his own comic book company Continuity Comics, which was in business until 1994. It’s hard to imagine anybody in that outfit moving especially gracefully in anything resembling real life, but Adams has a wonderful sense of pacing and timing during these issues.

Never mind the fact that it raises all sorts of questions about how Gordon can afford to just give cruise tickets away, surely that kinda undermines Batman’s secret identity? One of the keys to a great cover is unsurmountable danger, that palpable, anxious feeling THAT YOU JUST HAVE TO FIND OUT WHAT HAPPENS NEXT.Forced to choose between tending to an injured victim or pursuing a criminal, there’s no choice for this version of Batman. Adams succeeded co-creator artist Carmine Infantino with the following issue's 17-page story "An Eye for an Eye", [30] written by Arnold Drake, with George Roussos inking Adams' pencils. Also during the 1970s, Adams illustrated paperback novels in the Tarzan series for Ballantine Books. While O’Neil and Adams were consciously pulling the Caped Crusader back to his roots, that wouldn’t have been possible without the “new look” Batman as a transitional phase.

This extraordinary hardcover features Adams's contributions from 1967 through 1969, and shows the process of introduction, adaptation, and innovation that the young artist brought to this legendary crime-fighter. In Birth of the Demon, Denny O’Neil gives Ra’s an origin as a surgeon, similar to the late Thomas Wayne. O’Neil, of course, over his extended work on the character, wrote pretty much all of them at one time or another, but there’s only really two classic foes here. There’s also the fact that he is an older man who can never die, while Bruce’s father died before the Caped Crusader really had a sense of him. Darn great Bronze Age stuff, ranging from his fun and dynamic Brave and the Bold work to his solo caped crusader tales that defined the character for a generation with Denny O’ Neil.An underground world full of intelligent neanderthals, dinosaurs who have evolved to become like humans, jazz magicians, aliens, tv reporters, gnomes, trolls, mildly evil scientists, ancient Egyptian gods, giant bats, and "oilmen" (? It didn't stop me from working at DC; they were a little annoyed at me, but that was a calculated plan. Each resembles taut TV crime drama, but a collection shows how often Haney fell back on the same ideas.
