Detective Comics #472 - Marshall Rogers art & cover

Marshall Rogers
Detective Comics v1 #472 featuring Batman, 1977 - Hugo Strange pronounces himself the new Batman on the opening page. Marshall Rogers' graphically arresting style brings a fresh new perspective to the characters. The action scenes are dynamic, but even the more mundane scenes are elegantly designed. The confrontation between Bruce and girlfriend Silver St. Cloud is especially memorable (see interior page below). Rogers' cover is deceptively simple yet utterly compelling. This story was first reprinted in Shadow of the Batman #2. This is number 5 of 13 Detective Comics issues with Rogers art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Rogers or Detective Comics issues. See also this blog's Rogers checklist or Top 10 Rogers comics.
