The fan-fave Bronze Age artist turns 71…
Given my particular obsessions, the first time I encountered Ed Hannigan’s work was when he was the Batman cover artist in the ’80s. He remains one of the best ever.
Of course, he also had a healthy run at Marvel with a string of memorable covers across a variety of titles. (He also co-created Cloak and Dagger with Bill Mantlo.)
So with Hannigan turning 71 — he was born Aug. 6, 1951 — this year’s 13 COVERS birthday salute is a tip of the pencil to his time at the House of Ideas.
