I know there's a pin-up in Superman 400 by Eisner featuring the Spirit, but this Batman one is unheard of.

EDIT:

He does a pin-up of Batman & The Spirit in Detective Comics #600. Is this what you mean?

Other than old school... Not sure about Marv Wolfman, Rick Vietch, ? Steve Ditko never did. Kyle Baker never did.

Walt Simonson?
I'm pretty sure Wolfman was on Batman at some point in the 80s.

Simonson did a few issues of Detective with Englehart right before Marshall Rogers came on.

Chris Claremont and John Byrne should have worked on the Batman comics.

Byrne did a multi-issue arc that had something to do with there being multiple bodies turning up in Batsuits and everyone thought Batman was dead. It was called: The Many Deaths of Batman or something

I read this post and you compelled me to look through my back issues and pulls this arc out. Been a long time since I last re-read it.



BATMAN #433 this comic I hold in my hand here in this pic and the first issue of that arc is one of my favorite comic books of all time. The great Jim Aparo doing what he does best being a great storyteller with imagery and he gets to do it the ENTIRE issue.

Just wonderful. Someone like Tony Daniel's storytelling with his art is still pretty muddled for example. Despite many years as a pro. Never Aparo though. Daniel amongst other modern artists could really learn to improve their storytelling from looking at that issue actually.

Anyway digression aside since you haven't yet I'd recommend you read the story just for the first part alone. It's also heavily Gordon centric which was a rarity back then so if you're a big fan of the Commissioner like I always was it's a treat for that too.

The writing was somewhat hacknyed sometimes towards the ending of it but that was always Byrne's thing. He was better with concepts than execution a lot of times. For the most part though his work was always readable.

It is good, there is a highly obvious flaw, but the story is still good to read

Gaiman also wrote "Black Orchid" which features Batman.

a lot of the Marvel centric guys like the Romitas or Buscemas probably never drew Batman. I know JR Jr. did draw Batman and Punisher in a crossover by Denny O'neil and did a Batman Spiderman crossover as well.

He did some according to an earlier post. I would have loved to have seen him tackle some Dark Knight type stuff, though. The closest I've seen other-wise was some Din/Timm stuff, (in print) and the recent "Batman: Brave and the Bold" TV show has a definite Kirby influence there. (Especially noticeable in the title sequence)

Spider-Man & Batman had 3 crossover stories? I know one is drawn by Mark Bagley, the second is by Graham Nolan
