Batman's Best Panels Ever

Chris Sims of Comics Alliance offers up his choices for the 18 best panels in Batman's 700+ issue history. He stipulates that they have to be actual panels (not poster art), Batman must be in the panel, and no full-page panels. The one above is from "Fear for Sale" by Mike W. Barr and Alan Davis (Detective Comics #570).
If there's one thing I've learned from two and a half decades reading Batman comics, it's that that dude straight upĀ loves to punch people. As you might expect, this means there are some truly fantastic chin-checks delivered over the past 70 years, but nobody -- not even Neal Adams -- makes Batman deliver an uppercut quite as solid as Alan Davis in his all-too-brief late '80s run.

That thing is just textbook perfect form: Great extension, moving forward to maximize power, and if the Scarecrow's mask hadn't been attached, I'm pretty sure Batman would've punched his headĀ clean off.
