Two-Face in DC's Showcase #8 at Auction

Heritage Sponsored

In 1993, DC Comics resurrected its classic title Showcase, rebranding it from 1993 – 1996 with yearly numbering. The first outing, Showcase '93, stayed mostly true to the original spirit of DC's Showcase that began in 1956 and ran until 1970. The idea was to feature supporting characters in starring roles, essentially testing them out as potential lead characters for future series. This was done with many heroes, but this specific issue of Showcase '93 tried it with one of Gotham's most iconic villains: Two-Face. The storyline, titled "Batman: 2 Face Part Two" began in the previous installment and came to its climax in this issue. It was written by Doug Moench, penciled/inked/colored by Klaus Janson, and lettered by Ken Bruzenak. What adds to the history of this specific issue of Showcase '93 si that this wasn't just a single Two-Face story, but it also had backup stories. The issue featured Kobra: The Kobra Kronicles Part III: Brainwashed by Mike Baron, Gary Barker, José Marzan Jr., Paul Mounts, and Gaspar Saladino and Fire and Ice: Shadow of the Honeycreeper by Elliot S. Maggin, Steven Harris, Carlos PedrazziniStuart Chaifetz, and Lois Buhais.
