    Description

    Michael William Kaluta The Shadow and Batman Sketch Original Art (1980). The Shadow, the classic pulp-fiction franchise of the 1930s and '40s, has become a long-term labor of love for Kaluta, who has redefined the mysterious crimebuster in revivalist series for publishers as varied as DC, Marvel, and Dark Horse (1970s-90s). This stand-alone image anticipates a confrontation between the Shadow and DC's Batman -- who appears in silhouette at the left. Graphite on Bristol board. Image area, 10" x 12.25". Light toning. Excellent condition. From the Ethan Roberts Estate Collection.
