Happy 87th Birthday, Russ Heath!

Glamourpuss #11 (2010)
Art by Russ Heath
Russ Heath (born 29 September 1926) was inducted into the Will Eisner Comic Book Hall of Fame in 2009 and is perhaps best known for his artwork for DC Comics war stories over several decades (and the fact that his 1962 drawings of fighter jets in DC Comics' All American Men of War #89 were "appropriated" by pop artist Roy Lichtenstein in the oil paintings Blam and Brattata!) and for his work with Harvey Kurtzman on Playboy's Little Annie Fanny. More recently, Russ Heath contributed three covers to Dave Sim's Glamourpuss #11-13 (2010) as well as four 'That Russ Heath Girl' pin-ups in Glamourpuss #16-19 (2011). Happy Birthday Russ!
