How do you display two radically different heroes like Superman and Batman on the same cover? A lot of World's Finest covers had Supes fighting someone like the Parasite while Batman battled Clayface. Gil Kane took a different approach in this 1983 DC Comics cover.
More of a thematic image here: Superman, flying over Metropolis (and having fun by his expression) while the specter of a somber Batman looks over the horizon of the city. A great image that captures the essence of each character. I think this made me want to buy the comic. Although the story inside wasn't as good as the cover promised.
Here is the World's Finest #289 cover with color as originally published. Kane didn't draw the main story but he did the Green Arrow / Black Canary back up tale.
Ironically enough, I just discovered the lead story for this issue was listed in Cracked's 8 Most Awkward Sexual Moments in Comic Book History (involving tentacle porn). Sheesh! Nuff Said!
