A birthday celebration…
Last month was Carmine Infantino’s birthday and I had a good time going out on a limb and ranking his 13 GREATEST BATMAN COVERS. (Click here. It’s a fun time.)
Of course, one of his top collaborators was inker Joe Giella, who turns 90 and is the oldest living Batman artist by a comfortable margin. (Infantino himself died in 2013.)
While he certainly worked on characters besides the Caped Crusader, it’s Batman for whom Giella is best known. Hence, this 13 COVERS salute to an artist who helped craft Batman’s Silver Age image — and is one of my favorites.
All the covers here are pencilled by Infantino, except for one by Sheldon Moldoff, which is noted:
