Man, you have to love the art team on Detective Comics - both Jock and Francesco Francavilla have been filling my inbox with sneak peeks at some great Batman art from upcoming issues. Jock just sent over the amazing splash above from DETECTIVE COMICS #876 - I'll let him tell us about it:
Excited about today’s earlier post, announcing BATMAN: GATES OF GOTHAM? Well, that’s not all, May’s going to be a major month for BATMAN – here’s your first look at May’s solicits, after the jump. BATMAN INCORPORATED #7 Written by GRANT MORRISON Art and cover by CHRIS BURNHAM 1:25 Variant cover by FRAZER IRVING
Somehow, tools, evidence and weapons relating to some of Batman’s deadliest foes are ending up in the wrong hands – and people are dying because of it. Newly ensconced Batman Dick Grayson must piece together the pieces of the mystery, which point to a deadly new adversary. But will he be able to bring down his new enemy before more die?
After Jock emailed over that epic Batman splash page, it was only fair that COMMISSIONER GORDON artist Francesco Francavilla chime in. And wow. Is that a great piece of art – the cover to DETECTIVE COMICS #874.
