The COMICS WORLD has lost another one of its Greats....
died this past weekend (cause of death unknown at this time) - he was 57. Rogers is best known for his innovative take on BATMAN in the 70s. His style of the Dark Knight was considered "The Definitive Batman" for years - a dark, brooding hero who stayed to the shadows and flowed with a natural grace. An architect by training, Rogers' work always stood out for its attention to detail, from the cityscapes of Gotham and articulated (and realistic) muscles of the heroes, to the different techniques he would employ, from bold blacks and zipatone to a wide array of others.

Thank you for your many amazing contributions to Comics, Rogers! Your work is still inspiring and being emulating today! You will be missed.
