MARSHALL ROGERS HAS DIED

Marshall Rogers Batman

March 27, 2007: MARSHALL ROGERS (born January 22, 1950) has died. He was 57 years old.

The above cover is from DC Comics Detective Comics 1977.

Marshall Rogers' version of Batman, both the 1977 version with Englehart as writer, and the 2005 version with Englehart again, was unique. Rogers was a superb draftsman with real training in mechanical drawing. His Gotham cityscapes were drawn with an eye toward architectural reality, and were a dramatic contrast to the antiseptically drawn Gotham City of the usual superhero artists. Rogers' also had a genuine sense of design, and this also made his stint on Detective Comics stand out.

The NEWSARAMA site has a page about Rogers' career and the announcement of his death

BLUE BOY

The Darwyn Cooke take on Eisner's The Spirit barrels on, this time with Silk Satin showing up in issue #4 as a CIA agent who alternatively insults and pines for "Gainsborough," her pet word for The Spirit (because he dresses all in blue, like painter Thomas Gainsborough's "The Blue Boy," get it?) also back is Hussein (he was in issue #2), the double-dealing but affable Arab.

It's light-hearted like Eisner's original Spirit tales, and Cooke has the same sort of affinity for female character's as Eisner, as in none are as bad as you think, or as good.

The artwork and story is well-done in the superhuman mold, and I just wish all of DC Comic's product had this level of quality. A full review to follow.
