This is the series by which most western comics should be judged. Bat Lash was a short-lived comic book in the late sixties created by Sergio Aragones (best known for his margin cartoons in Mad Magazine) and Nick Cardy (best known for his work on Teen Titans and Aquaman). Bat Lash reads like a spaghetti western directed by Fred Zinneman. It's a shame that this series hasn't been given a hardcover color treatment yet, but the fine details of Nick Cardy's artwork, and Dan Spiegle's in the newer stories, shows through to great effect. This is one of those books I can heartily recommend 100%! Comic fans and western fans will love Showcase Presents Bat Lash!
