Michael William Kaluta, sometimes credited as Mike

Kaluta or Michael Wm. Kaluta (born August 25th, 1947 in Guatemala, Central America), is an American comic book artist and writer best known for his acclaimed 1970s adaptation of the pulp magazine hero, The Shadow with writer Dennis O’Neil.

Kaluta has worked for role-playing game companies such as White Wolf Publishing. He has done artwork for collectible card games companies, including a comic book for Wizards of the Coast’s Magic: The Gathering and illustrating cards on Last Unicorn Games’ Heresy: Kingdom Come.

Among music fans, Kaluta is known as the artist for the cover of Glenn Danzig’s instrumental album Black Aria and
for the interior illustration of 
Danzig’s fourth album, the latter of which appeared in 1994 and 1995 as a pendant sold at Danzig concerts, and on Danzig T-shirts and sweaters produced in the same period. Kaluta created the CD covers and interior booklet illustrations for Nativity in Black I and II, tribute albums to the music of Black Sabbath. Kaluta drew the cover art for the Bobby Pickett album The Original Monster Mash when it was reissued in 1973.

His work has won him a good deal of recognition, including the Shazam Award for Outstanding New Talent in 1971, and the 2003 Spectrum Grandmaster Award.
