Like most kids, I group up on the staples of Batman and Superman from the DC Comics world. Once the TV show got popular, lots of bands recorded versions of Batman songs, and the "Dan and Dale" album from 1966 is one of the more memorable, especially in light of the fact that it was a studio album including member of Sun Ra and Al Cooper's bands. The original cover featured these five great illustrations -- I have no idea who did them -- but I thought they belonged here.
I think those pictures were straight out of the comic books... if it was back then I'd probably remember who the artist for the first couple was. Maybe Carmine Infantino? The Joker and penguin ones were older, looked like from the 50's or possibly earlier.
