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:
Before Dick Grayson was Batman, even before he was Robin, he was a member of the Flying Graysons. Turns out that coming from a family of acrobats provides some pretty solid guidelines on how to be Batman. See, when things look grim, Grayson has three rules for staying alive on the trapeze and they work just as well for staying alive on the mean streets of Gotham:
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.
