Dynamic indeed…

The late, great Carmine Infantino — who was born 96 years ago on May 24, 1925 — drew some of my all-time fave Batman covers. He was a master and is on my personal Mount Rushmore of Bat-artists.

Of course, he did plenty of interiors too and his cover-design sense certainly extended to splash pages — so here are 13 of them, all from Detective Comics. (And you can also check out 13 COVERS at the links below!)

  3. These images bring back wonderful memories of the Batman tv show and of the use of this artwork in much of the Batman merchandising, especially the coloring books, which I loved.

  4. Infantino has always been a favorite. Too bad Amazon is now listing the previously announced Legends of the DC Universe: Carmine Infantino Vol. 1 Hardcover as January 2, 2079! With all the ownership-caused upheaval DC is experiencing and still facing, it really may be then before it comes out.
