Cool Covers

Batman: Shadow of the Bat #81
As I continue going through my comics, getting everything better organized, I'm coming across some awesome issues that I haven't seen or read in a while. Back in 1999, an Earthquake hit Gotham and the government decided they couldn't spend more money fixing it, cut it off from the rest of the US and declare it a no man's land, thus beginning the year long even of that title. As things lead up to it, Arkham was in ruins and the inmates took over (a very common occurrence, apparently) and no cover better represented the feel than this one. Glen Orbik doesn't seem to do a whole lot lately (that I know of) but this cover is amazing. A poster worthy of hanging with the best.
