1985 Marshall Rogers BATMAN Comic Store Poster! DC Comics!

Here is a rare goodie from the not-so-distant past! The 1985 comic store ad poster for the SHADOW OF THE BATMAN reprint series! This series re-ran the late 70s Steve Englehart/Marshall Rogers/Terry Austin Batman tales from their groundbreaking run on DETECTIVE COMICS then. Always loved the simple design and execution of this image. Very powerful! Click to enlarge!

Michael-A comics store owner down in Florida (where I attended art school) gave this to me then, at the end of one semester!

I sorta forget about it, as it's tacked to my studio ceiling!
