13 COVERS: The Wonderfully Weird BATMAN of SHELDON MOLDOFF

Dark Knight? This guy?

Sheldon Moldoff gets a bad rap. As the preeminent Bob Kane ghost of the late ’50s/early ’60s, he was the primary artist when Batman was at his lowest ebb — battling bizarro creatures and getting stuck in ever-increasingly implausible scenarios.

No dark avenger of the night he.

But so what? This stuff is FUN. Because, really, what the world needs now is Batman vs. the Jigsaw Creature From Space.

Sheldon Moldoff was born April 14, 1920. He would have been 97 this week (he died in 2012) and so we celebrate with 13 Wonderfully Weird Batman Covers.

And if you want to see last year’s collection — and you do, trust me — click here.
