This is one of my favorite comic book panels. Rogers was one of the few artists to ever make the Joker truly scary. I spent a few fondly remembered years of my childhood sleeping under sheets that bore this guys work. One of the last things I'd see every night before going to bed was this face staring up at me.

Marshal Rogers

from DETECTIVE COMICS #475 - Art by Marshall Rogers and Terry Austin

Gay guy voice: Oh my God, that purple trench coat is fabulous. And the yellow vest is to die for. But the way he matched them up with green and blue...*shakes head*...too much honey.

It IS a shame, Marshall Rogers wasn't very old at all. But a very good artist.

His Joker was, will be definitive. It's easily the clearest influence on the way most artists draw him these days, especially Bolland.

In fact, when I think of Rogers, I almost always think first of the ad for a big name comic shop here in the UK that ran adverts for their store in various UK comics and fanzines throughout the eighties that used a great illustration of The Joker by him.

And then I think of all the nudie work he did in those comics him and Englehart did at Eclipse when I was a kid. Mmm, boobies.

Oxy: Straight guy voice: I'd say it matches his eyes.

Dwayne: Yeah. It kind of sucks. I was hopoing to see more stuff from Marshall after THE DARK DETECTIVE.

Sally: 57!! Jeez! I had no idea the guy was so young. Y'know, compared to geezers like Infantino.

Mark: Yeah. Bolland's probably #2 on the Joker artist list.

Mmm, boobies indeed.

Well, I don't actually think this is likely to have effect.
