The acclaimed artist was born 75 years ago on Aug. 25, 1947…
This is seriously messed up. Somehow, someway, it’s been six years since the last time we posted a Mike Kaluta birthday salute. Kaluta’s art is all over 13th Dimension in other contexts — but 2016 was the last time he got the 13 COVERS birthday treatment.
I can’t explain it. I can only bow my head in contrition — and bring you 13 COVERS this year!
My gut instinct is always to go for horror where Kaluta’s concerned but I like to save a lot of that for Halloween season. So instead, this year’s theme is his fan-favorite work on The Shadow.
Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men? Kaluta knows.
