Man-Bat Vs. Man-Wolf

When it came to cover artists, there were two that always stood above the pack for me in their ability to sell a story with a single image.   To me, Gil Kane was the Marvel cover artist, and Nick Cardy was easily my favorite from DC.  Their talents were clearly recognized because they were used on covers spanning all types of genres, from superhero to western to horror and more.  I was glad to be able to use both of these legendary artists for today's entry.

For the Bronze Age, these are the guys.

Cardy is my favorite by a smidge because he almost never drew a cover I didn't like.

Kane was more uneven, many of his covers were forgettable. But his good ones are very very good.

Very cool!
One of the best issues of The Batman Adventures was the Halloween monster issue that was a sequel to that Cat-Man episode. With the mad scientist and Catwoman.

Didn't Kirk Langstrom become a were-jaguar in Batman Family from time to time?

One of the worst choices was to make him a villain rather than a conflicted, tortured hero. I'll never understand that.

This one is an awesome cover with a very natural team-up. Well done!
