    Spotlighting The Artwork Of Jerry Robinson and Mort Meskin! This issue highlights two of the shining talents of the 1940’s and ’50’s- Jerry Robinson and Mort Meskin. Both artists arrived on the budding comic book scene in the late 1930’s, and were soon impacting it heavily, both individually and as a team. Jerry Robinson started out working with Bob Kane on the early Batman feature,and was soon ghosting much of the strip’s interior art and covers. This book features a solo Robinson outing on Lev Gleason’s Daredevil, from issue #47 of that book. Meskin co-created Sheena, Queen Of The Jungle , and produced much of the art that got the MLJ/Archie comic book line off the ground. Soon he, too was doing top-flight work at DC on features like The Sandman, Starman, Wildcat, Johnny Quick and The Vigilante.In this book you get to see Mort’s efforts alone on Golden Lad, from Spark Publication’s Golden Lad #2, November of 1945,and The Tomboy feature from Captain Flash #1,a 1954 Sterling Publications book. But it was there collaborations that are most memorable, and this book is topheavy with some of their wildest. See The Black Terror in “Grandpa Shows His Medals
