The Silent Night of The Batman

My essay on the classic 1969 Neal Adams Batman backup story (written by fan-turned-pro Mike Friedrich) for editor Dan Greenfield and his cool pop culture blog/site, 13th Dimension, that ran on Christmas Eve! "Though slight in quantity of pages, in quality 'Silent Night' ranks with the greatest of Adams' early illustrated works that would go on to inspire the international graphic-design trade magazine Graphis to write in 1972, 'An innovator in several ways, Neal Adams, juggling incessantly with his pictures to striking effect, remains the master of narrative technique.'"
