   Over the years, many artists have contributed to the look of one of the most iconic characters in popular culture: Batman. The most influential and popular may be Neal Adams, who in the late 1960s put the Dark Knight back in the shadows and updated his image for a new generation of fans. Now, for the first time, all of Neal Adams's Batman work — covers and stories — is being chronologically collected in three volumes, the first of which debuts in September! This extraordinary hardcover features Adams's contributions from 1967 through 1969, and shows the process of introduction, adaptation, and innovation that the young artist brought to this legendary crime-fighter. Along the way, Adams also illustrates many other DC heroes, including Superman, The Flash, Aquaman, and The Teen Titans, as well as his signature character, Deadman.

   When Adams burst onto the scene in the 1960s, his sense of design, color and realism not only helped influence a generation of artists and excited fans, and also inspired many writers to new heights of creativity — including Bob Haney and other writers showcased in Volume 1. Adams provides a new cover and introduction, and has gone back to tweak some of his early art and re-color five of the eight stories presented here.

   The first of a planned three volume set chronologically compiling the legendary Batman work of Neal Adams. The first volume contains Adams's complete run from 1967-69: Batman #200, #203 and #210; The Brave and The Bold #75-76 and #79-85; Detective Comics #370, #372, #385, #389, #391, and #392; and World's Finest Comics #174-176, #178-180, #182-183, #185, and #186. Included is a new cover, an introduction by Adams, and an update and re-coloring of some of his early art. Original Publication Dates: December 1966 - October 1969
