It's a very human story, very well written.
And Klaus Janson's art is great as always.
This is one of those rare little lost classics. I don't know anything about Alan Brennert but it's a shame Marvel couldn't find more work for him.
Quality Rating: A+

Alan Brennert was previously a longtime letterhack for DC and Marvel, and eventually became one of the better writers on DC's Batman titles(though he never had a rather long run on anything). After this, he primarily wrote for TV.

How come you only scanned so few panels for what you describe as a 'classic'? BTW this is not a dig I'm genuinely interested.

It's a quiet story. Not very splashy or action oriented. I wanted to include a few scans to demonstrate Klaus Janson's art and layouting, but didn't want to include lots of scans of people just talking.

Fair enough. I'lls see if I can pick that one up sometime.

Alan Brennert wrote about 5 Batman stories, everyone of them is a Grade A classic and regularly features in Greatest Batman Stories collection and this is no different in quality.

I'm sorry, but Kingpin looks exactly like Charlie Brown in that last scan.
