In Praise of Al Plastino! DC Comics BATMAN Silver Age Artist and More!

Dig this terrific art below. It's from the now-rare late 60s BATMAN newspaper comic strip! Drawn by Al Plastino (with a sometimes assist from Nick Cardy), this series sorta fell between the cracks of time, altho examples of it pop up now as original art. I'd LOVE to see a reprinting of the strip someday, as it depicts Batman (and his superhero cohorts) at a crossroads of his somewhat silly Silver Age period to his emerging "creature of the night" 70s mode. And that great art...To see, read, and hear more about Al Plastino, click here! While you're at it, click the image below to enlarge!
