Black and White Wednesday: Groovy Marshall Rogers Original Art
Yep, you read the title right, Groove-ophiles! Ol' Groove has trucked around the Internet and scrounged up a few samples of original art by the late, lamented, and legendary Marshall Rogers! Rogers, of course, is best known for his Batman run in Detective Comics (alongside writer Steve Englehart and inker Marshall Rogers), along with Mister Miracle and (after the Groovy Age) Doctor Strange, Silver Surfer, Detectives Inc., Cap'n Quick and a Foozle, and so much more. We're focusing on the Groovy Age, natch, so here's some waaaaaaaaay far out Batman, Mister Miracle--and a few surprise-- original pieces comin' atcha!
