An absolute, utter, no-question, all-time favorite…
I’ll get right to it: The late Dick Giordano — who was born 87 years ago — is one of my favorite artists of all time. Certainly my favorite inker.
And even though he had quite the varied career, I will forever associate him with Batman. Big surprise there, I know.
Anyway, he only did so many covers of the Caped Crusader as both penciller and inker, but I don’t mind sharing a 13 COVERS selection from the same, relatively limited pool every year.
Because the heart wants what the heart wants — and the heart wants some clean, sharp Dick Giordano Batman (and Batman-related) art.
