13 SPLASH PAGES: A NORM BREYFOGLE Birthday Celebration

The late fan-favorite artist was born 63 years ago…

The late Norm Breyfogle — born 63 years ago on Feb. 27, 1960 — was one of the most beloved Batman artists since the end of the Bronze Age. (I personally consider his work to be Bronze Age-Plus, but hey.)

Anyway, we’ve run many tributes to Breyfogle over the years, mostly focusing on covers and stories. This year? Splash pages — namely from Detective Comics, which he joined in 1987.

Dig these:

Issue #613, Page 12. Steve Mitchell inks.
