Detective Comics #473 - Marshall Rogers art & cover

Marshall Rogers
Detective Comics v1 #473 featuring Batman, 1977 - Just arriving into Gotham, a jeweled artifact catches the covetous eye of the Penguin. Sharply drawn and composed, the art by Marshall Rogers continues to impress. Batman and Robin's streamlined look culminates in a superb portrait atop a building on page 10. Dawn breaks between skyscrapers as the duo's capes expand to fill the frame. On the cover, Marshall Rogers uses a more subtle approach in revealing the story's villain (note the background shadow). This story was first reprinted in Shadow of the Batman #3. This is number 6 of 13 Detective Comics issues with Rogers art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Rogers or Detective Comics issues.
