Yet another classic comic book cover.

Here's a typically eye-catching and atmospheric Batman cover by Neil Adams.

The story inside is equally cool. Published in 1971, it featured the first important appearance of the villain Two-Face in a number of years. Typical of many of the issues written by Denny O'Neil during this time, it was a well-constructed mystery in which Batman gets to show off his detective skills, his fighting skills, his escape artist abilities and his understanding of the psychology of his opponents. O'Neil was particularly good at jamming a lot of plot elements into a single issue and still create a smoothly flowing narrative.
