Saluting one of the greatest artists in Batman history.
UPDATED 1/22/19: A slightly different version of this first ran in 2018 but it’s just as relevant today. Enjoy. — Dan
Marshall Rogers is on my personal Mount Rushmore of Batman artists and he’s in all likelihood on yours, too.
(For me, it’s Adams, Rogers, Infantino and Mazzucchelli. Discuss.)
I’ve published a lot about Rogers over the years — including insights from pros like Steve Englehart, his Batman collaborator, Kelley Jones and Chip Kidd — and with his birthday again upon us, it seemed like a good idea to index my favorite pieces. (Rogers was born Jan. 22, 1950, and died far too young at the age of 57 in 2007.)
So feel free to click the links below. I promise you’ll like what you find.
