One of Batman’s greatest…
Dick Sprang was hardly the only artist who ghosted for Bob Kane on Batman but he’s one of the best known — and one of the very best.
His look is so popular that, in retrospect, people call the Batman house style of the ’40s and ’50s “the Dick Sprang style” — regardless of whether it was actually his work.
Sprang was born July 28, 1915 — 103 years ago. He died in 2000.
His work remains as beloved now as it was then.
