Man, I love Dick Giordano’s art.
Doesn’t matter whether it’s as inker or penciller, he’s one of my all-time faves. (He’s my top choice as an inker, by the way.)
Now, here’s the thing: Giordano — who was born July 20, 1932, and died in 2010 — had a varied and, pardon the pun, illustrious career. But to me, he’ll always be associated with Batman first. Always.
So here’s this year’s 13 COVERS birthday salute. Each cover features Giordano on pencils and inks — and they’re all Batman.
