Batman and Nightwing and Flamebird

This is one of my earlier covers and is a little rough. It's a bit bare, I should have probably added a caption or word balloon.

Nightwing and Flamebird was a cool concept that was right at home in the silver age: Superman, powerless in the Bottle City of Kandor, joins forces with Jimmy Olsen as a Natman and Robin type team. Fun stuff. DC has recently tried to revive the Nightwing and Flamebird names with two new characters who recently headlined Action Comics for a year. I can't speak to how well they held up the mantle, not having read the stories - but they certainly had some big shoes to fill.

I didn't read the new Nightwing and Flamebird either but I loved those silver age stories with Superman and Jimmy in the roles. This would have been a great team-up and good to see either Aparo's art on the two characters or Swan's work on Batman. Wonder what the story would have been about to get Batman into Kandor?
