[Note: To celebrate the release of BATMAN: THE RETURN OF BRUCE WAYNE DELUXE EDITION – now available in comic shops and book stores everywhere – we’ve asked the artists on each chapter to give us a few words on what it was like to work with Grant Morrison to adapt one of the world’s greatest superheroes to different periods of history.]
Lee Garbett, artist on THE RETURN OF BRUCE WAYNE, PART VI: THE ALL-OVER:
"I remember it was back in January '10 and actually on my Birthday that Mike Marts dropped me a line to say Grant would like me to do the final issue of Return of Bruce Wayne. As you can imagine this was like getting the greatest gift evah!
"It's the biggest issue of my career to date and I loved getting the chance to draw these really fast paced scenes and classic characters. The JLA and Wonder Woman stepping up to Bruce was so much fun, as was the chance to echo moments from the last time I worked with Grant, on Batman: Last Rites.
"Grant's scripts tend to have more ideas on one page than you usually get in an entire comic and this was no different, really inspiring, epic stuff with this wonderful Kirby vibe running through it. Scheduling meant I was unable to complete the whole issue, which I'm sad about but it was a real honor to be part of something so special."
