[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. Keep watching The Source throughout the day for more from these spectacular artists!]
The headline says it all, folks. We’ve got a first look at covers for BATMAN: RETURN OF BRUCE WAYNE #4 by Cameron Stewart, TIME MASTERS: VANISHING POINT #1 by Chris Sprouse, BRIGHTEST DAY #6 by David Finch and ZATANNA #3 by Brian Bolland. What better way to close out Tuesday than by clicking on some lovely cover art? See you tomorrow.
It’s all been building to this, folks. Bruce Wayne – Batman – has been lost in time and believed dead by his closest allies. His former sidekick has taken the cowl. Gotham remains under constant assault. But the question remains: where – or when – is Batman?
BATMAN: THE RETURN OF BRUCE WAYNE #1 launches a special, six-issue event that chronicles the return of the original Dark Knight, springing from the mind of writer Grant Morrison. With each issue spanning a different era of time and featuring the dynamic artwork of a different, A-list comic book artist.
You’ve seen the covers. You’ve seen a few of the variants. You’ve seen the character sketches. Now it’s time for more. Specifically, a few black and white pages from the first issue, put on the page by the highy-talented Chris Sprouse and Karl Story. Can you say Caveman Batman? Sure. Well, now you can see him, too.
Last week, we announced that Frazer Irving was going to be handling the art duties on the next arc of BATMAN AND ROBIN. Along with that news we showcased Frazer’s lovely RETURN OF BRUCE WAYNE #2 variant cover. But what of #1, you ask?
Well, here you go. Courtesy of superstar artist Chris Sprouse and inker Karl Story, the art team on #1:
The World’s Greatest Detective is facing his toughest mystery.
Lost in the timestream, believed to be dead by his friends and enemies alike, Bruce Wayne must use every bit of intelligence, every ounce of strength and training he’s acquired over the years to find his way back to the city, and adopted family of vigilantes, he’d left behind.
