Truly an anatomical nightmare but very atmospheric and a good time for the bat books. It was something different but it worked. The really ****** times came afterwards.

I wouldn't put this in with the worst.
I think Kelley Jones' work, like Doug Moench's, is deliberately less about anatomical accuracy and more about the evocation of a disjointed, dark tone.
Their batman is a twisted up, abstract nightmare made manifest, and for a character that has as many interpretations as Bats, that's completely welcome...

Its totally understandable why, but the first appearance of Bats was truly horrible.

Why? All the basic components are in place, plus that look is canon

Yeah, I'm not sure I see what the problem is in that particular cover either. The early days did have some bad panel art at times and was certainly more simplistic, but that particular cover is a classic.

Saying that the first ever Batman cover is even slightly bad, is ridiculous.

Paul Pope, I hate the way he draws Batman making him look like a gremlin.

I love Paul Pope's Batman. He looks like Lee Marvin in the Bat-Suit.

Yeah. I suppose it can be an acquired taste but I think it works in the context. And Year 100 is a great book.

Because, simply put, the artwork was absolutely awful, besides being a total rip from a Flash Gordon comic. Iconic, yes, but it's still bad art.

The art looks pretty standard for the time. Sure, you could say it's crude, but it's only crude by modern standards. I'm not sure why you'd say it's a rip from Flash Gordon.
Especially, when Flash Gordon is a ripoff of Buck Rogers.

I don't agree. His wings-cape and his cowl may not not be what we are used to right now. But actually they made him look like a BAT-Man. I dig this look.

By a rip of Flash Gordon, I mean that drawing of Batman on the cover was traced directly from a drawing of Flash Gordon. Kane was well known for doing this kind of thing all the time.
As far as being crude by modern standarsd yes, that's true, but Kane's artwork ther was crude even for that time. There was plenty of contemoperaneous comic book artists that made Kane's stuff look like the scribblings of a child in comparison.

On that topic, this is what Batman was originally going to look like before Bill Finger got involved.

Yep, and that red-suited character would have gone nowhere.

Ty Templeton did a spoof on that drawing.
Sad and funny at the same time.
Thankfully Bill Finger was involved.
