Comment

“Marshall Rogers' precise drawings are matched only by his crisp page designs. The multi-paneled heroics at the top of page 9 are particularly good. This is the artist's first full length Batman feature.”

“Rogers and Austin's Batman proved to be a revelation to many fans who had grown bored and complacent with the DC artists of the mid-’70s. Like an oasis in the desert, the fans responded enthusiastically.”
—Batcave Companion

“At last, Rogers and Austin tackle Batman! This is really worth getting excited about. The art is crisp and inventive and it really elevates the story.”

Most likely the page of the year for me! Since 2016 I try to get to this page. So far unsuccessful and at the same time I had to observe that it changes owners every year…

I don't want to say any more about the quality and aesthetics of the page, the fantastic artists and the historical significance of the book. I'm just happy to have the page in my collection and it closes a gap in my collection.. And I hope that it will now come to rest and stay a little longer in a collection.

About Marshall Rogers

Marshall Rogers was the artist of several superhero comics. He was born in Flushing, NY in 1950, and began his career in comics in the late 1970s. He had his first success with DC's 'Batman' (scripts Steve Englehart, around 1978) and Marvel's 'Doctor Strange' (scripts by Roger Stern, 1981 to 1984). Afterwards, he worked on the 'Silver Surfer' and other Marvel characters, like 'Wolverine'. He left the comics field in the early 1990s. He returned to comics in 1996, with several stories published in DC's 'Big Book of Little Criminals', 'Big Book of Thugs' and 'Mister Miracle'. He reportedly died from a heart attack in March 2007.
