The recoloring and redrawing is a tad too Lucasian for me.

The recoloring I'm okay with; in my mind, changing the color from the cheap color printed on cheap paper to more modern coloring on expensive paper makes sense. (If it was being printed on newsprint I would not want it recolored.)

But added to it the fact that it has been redrawn and re-lettered? Too much. Which calls in to question the recoloring, too.

Just noticed Neal redrew Batman's head on the Hellgramite splash, but didn't
correct the odd tangent between his pointing finger and the knuckle of his
other hand.

I would love to give Neal Adams my money by buying his un-doctored work. Shoot!

The Batman by Neal Adams HCs also reprint this, my very first Batman comic, from 1975, and I still have it!

My mom used this comic for the pattern to make me my Robin costume.

I never noticed the redrawing... ugh.  I forced myself to put up with the "shiny" recoloring, but I REALLY don't like redrawing in reprints.

That overbite is more than a little disturbing.
