I love your magazine. However, in the June 2014 Batman issue I noticed some incorrect art credits. Page 44’s Haunting was pencilled and inked by Neal Adams (not Novick and Giordano). For page 46’s Watching the Detective (from left to right), the first cover is actually pencils and inks by Jim Aparo. The middle cover should be pencils by Marshall Rogers, inks by Terry Austin. The third is correct (Norm Breyfogle). In the main story, under Money Talks (also p46); in issue #183 of Batman, both stories were pencilled by Shelley Moldoff (not Carmine Infantino), inks by Joe Giella (as printed).
Sorry to point these out, but I just couldn’t let this go without some comment. Anyway, keep up the good work with ImagineFX. Paul Wing, Melbourne, Australia Claire replies Thanks for getting in touch Paul. Firstly Haunting. We have the comic here and the art credit is Irv Novick and Dick Giordano – there’s no credit for Neal Adams. Did DC get it wrong, perhaps? You are right about p46 though – our mistake. In the third instance, we credited the cover artist and inker rather than the internal artist, who was indeed Moldoff. We focused on cover artists as they’re the images people tend to remember.
We try very hard to correctly credit artists, but we are only human and do get things wrong. Apologies.
Our Batman feature in issue 109, contained a few mistakes, but was still a cracking good read!
