This is something I've been wanting to try for a while - a straight recreation (as opposed to the mash-up cover recreations I've done in the past) of the cover of one of the comics that helped change me into a comic fan as a kid.
In this case, Detective Comics #399
The original cover was created by Neal Adams, copyright DC Comics. This is one of a bunch of early Bronze Age covers I'd seen in the Bonanza book, Batman from the 30s to the 70s - and had always fascinated me. For years, I thought that Commissioner Gordon had been transformed into some kind of giant, since his hand was SO BIG in the foreground.
