Honoring one of the all-time greats…
Writing a lengthy preamble about my thoughts on Marshall Rogers is pretty pointless at the stage of the game. Other than Neal Adams, he’s probably the comics artist I’ve written the most about over the years, particularly when it comes to Batman illustrators.
Rogers, who died in 2007 at the age of 57, was born 72 years ago on Jan. 22, 1950. For this year’s birthday celebration, I’ve decided to do something we’ve never done — 13 SPLASH PAGES, all culled from his ’70s salad days in Gotham, a fictional city he drew better than anyone who’s ever lived. (In my not-so-humble opinion. But it makes sense, given he studied architecture.)
So dig these 13 SPLASH PAGES by one of the all-time greats — mostly inked by Terry Austin:
