Danny DeVito’s Penguin story debuts this week!
The Penguin, one of Batman’s most storied adversaries, debuted 80 years ago this year, in 1941’s Detective Comics #58. The ish was released in October of that year, but this week seemed a good time for a 13 COVERS gallery because Danny DeVito has written a Penguin story that appears in Gotham City Villains Anniversary Giant #1, out Tuesday.
Dig this variant by Frank Quitely:
Quitely’s Penguin is a mash-up of DeVito’s look from Batman Returns and Oswald Chesterfield Cobblepot’s classic image. Here’s how the Bird of Banditry looked in his first appearance, by the by — he wasn’t even on the cover!
Anyway, we’ve culled a selection that ranges from the Golden Age to the Modern Age, featuring artists like Dick Sprang, Carmine Infantino, Mike Grell, Norm Breyfogle and more.
