Next on our list of amazing artists who’ve stopped by to talk Batman is Dustin Nguyen, who’s put together an impressive run on Batman, first with DETECTIVE COMICS and now on BATMAN: STREETS OF GOTHAM. And as you can see from the piece below, not only is Dustin one of the nicest guys in comics, he’s a damn fine artist as well. Let’s see what he has to say. Take it away, Dustin:
“It's sort of a stained glass look at Gotham. This one, instead of trying to show the gritty side of the city with it's dark streets and noir-ish aspects , I aimed to showcase all of the colorful villains that make up who Batman really is.
“I think what makes the Batman mythology great, is that everyone and everything in Gotham ties back to him somehow. Gotham is definitely a city created for the character, and has evolved through the years. He's a personal favorite because he was the first popculture icon i was introduced to when i first came the US. I was about 5 or 6 years old, and there was just something about a character that wears a mask with horns and a cape jumping off buildings that amazed a kid.”
