Strange - Signed & Numbered Portfolio



In stock



A portfolio by the late Batman artist featuring his original characters and story. The Strange portfolio was the first of only two portfolios created by Rogers.

Six 11 x 16 inch plates and an 8.5 x 11 inch text plate (Artist's Profile) in an illustrated folder, signed by the artist on the first plate.

Limited edition portfolios were a phenomenon of the 1970s and 80s. They grew out of a greater appreciation of comic and fantasy artists. Middle-Earth lead the way publishing a 1973 portfolio of Frank Frazetta drawings that quickly sold out its 500-copy print run. It was followed by Barry Smith's Tupenny Conan Portfolio in 1974 and another Frazetta portfolio, The Lord of the Rings, in 1975. This lead to a decade of large format, limited edition portfolios: a suite of new illustrations created without restrictions or censorship, with better printing on better paper, reproduced in a large size, to fully appreciate the artwork.
