Professional History

Like many artists, Rogers began doing back-up strips in various obscure anthology titles such as Weird War Tales, but he quickly cemented himself as a comic book legend for his distinctive technique on Detective Comics beginning with Detective Comics #466. Along with writer Steve Englehart, Rogers' run on Detective proved very popular and came to be known as the "Strange Apparitions" story-arc. Englhart and Rogers revisited the concept in 2005 with the Batman: Dark Detective limited series. In 1989, Rogers was the first artist to work on the new Batman newspaper comic strip.
