    Jim Aparo Batman #331 Cover Original Art (DC, 1981). First appearance of the Electrocutioner! This shocking cover image was produced by the electrifying Jim Aparo! He's an artist who was already well-grounded in drawing Batman, with a decade of experience with the character since his first Batman story in Brave and the Bold #98 in 1971. The Electrocutioner was a recurring villain in the DCU, turning up in The Vigilante and several of the Bat-books. He also made an appearance on TV's Gotham, the animated movie Batman: Bad Blood, and has appeared in several Batman video games. Eagle eyes will notice; however, that they misspelled his name on the cover of his first appearance. Rendered in ink over graphite on Sparta cover stock Bristol board with an image area of 9.75" x 15". The DC bullet, logo, other header info, and the bottom caption box are all original stat paste-ups. Signed by Aparo just above the UPC box. In Very Good condition.

    More Information: EDIT: Added into re: First Appearance of the Electrocutioner, and his other appearances.
