PULSATING PIN-UPS PART FOUR: THE BAT-MAN & THE MAN-BAT...

Yeah, okay, I know - it's one word these days, but
'BATMAN' used to be hyphenated and I for one prefer
it that way.  However, that's neither here nor there, not
when there's some dynamic NEAL ADAMS art to gaze
at.  So what are you all waiting for?  Get gazing!

This one was the cover of Detective Comics #402 in 1970. The story was reprinted in Batman: From the 30's to the 70's, and also in the Man-Bat vs. Batman one-shot in the 1980's.

Originally, the caped crusader was THE Bat-Man. By the 1950's, he had lost both the article and the hyphen, and was plain old Batman.

Although, in the '70s, the name on the cover was spaced as BAT MAN on the logo for quite a while. I've got the '30s to the '70s book, but I don't think I saw the '80s one-shot issue, 'though I'll have the tale in a couple of books.
