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 coveting 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 (page 10). Dawn breaks between skyscrapers as the duo's capes expand to fill the frame. Rogers' resplendent cover emphasizes movement and action. Note the subtlety in revealing the issue's villain (in the background shadow). This story was later reprinted in Best of DC #14 and 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.
