The Daily Comic Book Coffee, number 79: Batman #469

The Daily Comic Book Coffee, number 79: Batman #469, penciled by Tom Lyle, inked by Scott Hanna, written by Chuck Dixon, lettered by Todd Klein, and colored by Adrienne Roy, published by DC Comics in September 1991.

Batman, in the midst of doing some late-night detective work in the Batcave, grudgingly accepts a cup of black coffee from Alfred. The three-issue “Shadow Box” story arc was a sequel to the Robin miniseries, reuniting the creative team of Chuck Dixon & Tom Lyle, with Scott Hanna joining them on inks.

Lyle was definitely one of the best pencilers to work on that various Batman titles in the early 1990s. He was very adept at drawing dynamic, athletic figures, which made him an ideal choice to drawn Batman and Robin for DC, and then later Spider-Man at Marvel. Lyle passed away in November 2019 at the age of 66.
