Nightwing and Daredevil in "Concussions and Repercussions!"



Towards the end of Jim Aparo's career, DC paired him with a variety of different inkers, with varying degrees of success.  One combo I really enjoyed was the Aparo/Bill Sienkiewicz pairing.  I wouldn't think the two styles would mesh at all, but I thought the result was pretty effective.

Nightwing and DD previously met in STF #431...

why is the spirit so mad

When my books take off and I have some extra cash lying around, my plan is to find some original Jim Aparo art and buy it. He was--and still is--my favorite Batman artist. I always love when you use his material.

Jim Apparo art is Batman. His Brave And The Bold covers were the best.

@Harry Bean: that's not the Spirit. That's the one-armed hit man known as The Bounty Hunter from TB&TB v. 1/#101 (May, 1972).

Among other things, the Bounty Hunter was known to use booby-trapped prosthetic arms in his killings.

Holy Googly-Google, Batman!

IIRC, the original B&B issue this was made from had Batman in place of Nightwing, but I can't remember who the co-star was, or what the issue number was. I'm reasonably sure I used to have it, however.

BRAVE & BOLD was the first Batman comic I bought regularly. Jim Aparo formed my idea of what Batman looks like, much as Curt Swan formed my idea of what Superman looks like. ^_^

One armed hit man? Has anyone alerted Dr. Richard Kimble?

@Sonofjack: I wouldn't assign that job to Doubting Anonymous #2. ;-)

What cover is Nigjtwing taken from? I know I've seen and my very well have it (my collection is more of an unorganized mess) and it's killing me I cannot think of it.
