Madame Xanadu Pin-Up by Michael Wm Kaluta

January 27, 2021|In General

Michael Wm Kaluta has been associated with Madame Xanadu from her first appearance in Doorway to Nightmare No. 1 in 1978.

In addition to the five Doorway covers and a Madame Xanadu one-shot that make up the character’s early appearances, Kaluta also contributed a pin-up to 1982’s DC Special Blue Ribbon Digest No.20.

The art is well-suited to being turned into a half-page ad for the return of DC’s anthology line. Colour and layout by me.
