As can happen, one artist draws a cover, and the editor chooses to have it redrawn by another artist. Case in point the cover for Batman 210, March 1969. The layout had been done by Carmine Infantino and passed on to Irv Novick who was enjoying his early years of drawing super-heroes for DC, which included Batman and The Flash.
For reasons unknown to us, DC decided to have to cover redrawn by Neal Adams, an artist who was beginning to reimagine super-heroes in American comics. This was only the third time he’d done a Batman cover.
Both of them are presented here for comparison. Fashion watchers do the “Who wore it better?” thing, so this is “Who drew it better?” Comments – as ever – are welcome.
