Classic Covers

Batman #207

Batman #207 is probably my favorite comic cover of all time. When I saw it in DC Comics house ads when I was a kid, it scared me to death. So violent, so realistic. Such a sense of urgency and dread. How could Batman and Robin possibly escape that death trap? If the machine guns don’t get them, they’ll drown! I bought this comic as an adult and the story, while not bad, doesn’t quite live up to that stunning cover.
