Sheldon Moldoff

Have you ever heard of Batman?

One of the great Golden Age artists, Sheldon Moldoff was a prolific artist and cover artist for DC comics.  He drew the first cover featuring the Golden Age Green Lantern, worked on some of the earliest comics featuring the Golden Age Hawkman and Hawkgirl, and was one of Bob Kane's "ghost artists" working on Batman. 

A number of years ago, Sheldon was coming up to Toronto and I bought a couple of pieces from him and asked about a piece featuring Sherlock Holmes and Batman.  This is the piece he did for me.  He said it was the first time he had ever been asked to draw Sherlock Holmes.  A few years ago he redid the image for another collector with some minor changes.
