The late, great pulp artist was born 116 years ago…
The 2023 Batman calendar is the DC Comics Batman Collector’s Edition Calendar, which features the 1966 Topps card art painted by Norm Saunders…
And one of the Batman collectibles right now is the McFarlane Toys’ action-figure 4-pack lunchbox, based in part on the card art…
Well, Saunders was born 116 years ago this week on Jan. 1, 1907, so how about 13 BATMAN TRADING CARDS to celebrate?
One thing to note before we get started though: Saunders is widely credited as the painter of these cards but it’s also believed that Bob Powell penciled them. I’m not sure if that’s the case with all or some of the cards, so if you have any solid intel, add it in the comments.
