The late comics stalwart was born 108 years ago on Aug. 22, 1915…
As is so often the case, I first encountered artist Bob Brown through his work on Batman, or more specifically Detective Comics, in the late ’60s and early ’70s.
I mean, people forget that he — and not Neal Adams — drew the first Talia story, in Detective Comics #411.
Anyway, his career stretched well beyond the Gotham City limits — and he had an especially groovy run as cover artist on The Doom Patrol.
So dig these 13 COVERS in all their Silver Age glory. Brown pencilled and inked each one, though it’s not entirely clear whether he inked Issue #115. Oh, and Issue #99 will be released as a Facsimile Edition later this year.
