Who's Who #5 - Crazy Quilt

One of the more obscure of his characters Kirby was called upon to illustrate for DC's first WHO'S WHO series was Crazy Quilt, a villain who first appeared in a few post-war BOY COMMANDOS issues with some different costumes.

From the write-up, he appears to have returned as a semi-regular Batman villain at some point, which I didn't know, hence Batman and Robin appearing in the drawing rather than the Boy Commandos. It's a pretty good drawing, although the main image is a bit plain, but the background drawings are nice.

Greg Theakston inked this piece.

Published 1985
