More Batman 197

Thought I'd share some nifty commissions I found on CAF, recreating Infantino's classic Batman 197. Mark Gordon commissioned these all.

Plus here's a much earlier Carmine Infantino COLOR recreation of Batman 197, from the gallery of Rick Loshiavo.

Last, but not least, here's a fab-oo recreation by James Lyle. See his gallery here

Silver Age Catwoman and Carmine Infantino

This Silver age cover is a grail for me - showcasing Catwoman's 2nd Silver Age cover and her 4th Silver Age appearance, and I was so pleased to find the original artist recreating his classic covers. Its signed by both penciler Carmine Infantino and inker Frank McLaughlin, and came with a letter of authenticity from Carmine. These golden/silver age greats are currently listing some recreations on ebay, under ID ehols, and on Carmine picked this cover and penciled it in June, Frank inked it and his daughter is assisting them by listing in ebay. A huge thanks goes out to Erin for this gift, and for getting her dad (Frank) to pose for his pic!

And here's my pic of Carmine, when I have the pleasure to meet him in New York.
