Batman & The Shadow by Mike Kaluta

Okay, so you may have noticed, in the not-so-distant, Russ laid a wunnerful jinx on me, asking if I'd ever noticed how Mike had done a lot more Shadows since his initial short-lived run on the first comic.  Until then, that realization had always been sub-conscious, but now...there's Kaluta Shadows everywhere!  In a good way, it's almost like The Trouble With Tribbles (I even have several Kaluta Shadows without Batman that are in my que from mak'n this post).  The eight image is interest'n to me, in that Berni Wrightson teamed up with Mike on that one, but Batman has (for Berni) unusually short ears.  The last couple show typical Batman ears by Wrightson


  1. Don't know if you're familiar with these; the Simonson reminds me of some old Shadow paperback covers where he looked really crazed.
