Batman No. 296 Cover by Amendola & Milgrom

May 24, 2022|In General

Sal Amendola has had a long career as a comic book artist and teacher. Though his work at DC was mostly accomplished during a brief period in the early 1970s, what he did do is well remembered. “Night of the Stalker” – eventually published in Detective Comics No. 439 – was a story he and brother Vin plotted from an idea by Neal Adams, and Sal pencilled. It had its words added by Steve Englehart and inks by Dick Giordano.

Batman No. 296 featured a Scarecrow story written by David V Reed. Amendola provided the cover and the interior art. New colour by me.
