A BIRTHDAY TRIBUTE to one of the greats…
Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez, one of comics’ most popular artists, turns 74! I’d say that the illustrator — who was born March 26, 1948 — is equally known for his comic book work and the ’80s DC Comics Style Guides.
Garcia-Lopez, however, also pencilled the style-guide art for the gigantic Batman ’66 merchandising wave that started hitting about a decade ago. (He was inked by Brett Breeding, at least in most cases, it seems.)
Anyway, here are 13 full-color examples culled (mostly) from a selection of posters — a birthday celebration in swingin’ Gotham City:
