Continuing our trip through great Bat-artists
Dick Sprang is one of the legends of Batman lore. Beginning on the character in the early 40s he took him from dark and wiry night-time avenger to a sort of Battling Batman-- one with a barrel chest and a jaw so square Dick Tracy would be jealous of it. Sprang was influenced by the stylized work of Tracy creator Chester Gould and it was a perfect match for the nightmarish world of Batman.
Sprang's work is clean and powerful and easily
