Lotta great artists have birthdays in August. Jim Aparo was one of them.
Confession time: I didn’t really like Jim Aparo‘s art much when I was a kid. But that’s because kids can be really stupid sometimes.
Jim Aparo, who was born Aug. 24, 1932, was one of the DC Comics mainstays from the end of the Silver Age to the modern era. If you’re reading this, chances are you already knew that.
My point is that he worked on a ton of comics. So how to do 13 COVERS? Focus on the title he’s best known for! Or at least the one that I most associate with him: Brave and the Bold.
Aparo died in 2005, but his art lives on in these favorites — and well beyond.
(Usual caveat applies: This is a subjective list of covers that I particularly dig. You may have others to add. Feel free to do so in the comments or in the social media thread where you found this!)
