Owner's Description

"Road to No Man's Land: Waxman and the Clown, Part 2"
January, 1999

Alan Grant story, Glen Orbik & Laurel Blechman cover
Mark Buckingham & Robert Campanella art

Grade Date: 12/16/2016
Purchased raw on 5/10/16 for $3.00 at Ed's Cards & Comics in Colorado Springs, CO.

This cover made a new fan of me in artist Glen Orbik, where I discovered many of his noir pin-up style examples. Glen Orbik and Laurel Blechman painted several amazing covers together for the No Man's Land saga. I was sad to learn of his passing shortly after I finding this piece along with several other covers of his.

The outside of Arkham Asylum is locked down and the cells are unlocked after the big quake and The Joker has declared himself Emperor. Inside are a who's who of Batman's deadliest rouges, from Killer Croc to Two Face to name a few.

Batman: Shadow of the Bat #81 is reprinted in BATMAN: ROAD TO NO MAN’S LAND VOL. 2 (2016).
