I was fortunate enough to be asked to draw some more covers for the DC Universe, focusing primarily on the "Big Guns" like Superman, Batman, etc., so I figured I'd start with Batman like anybody else. The difficulty is that I am meant to draw covers for no issue in particular, so the imagery can't be story-specific. Instead, I am to go for iconic shots that could be used anywhere.
"No problem", I replied hastily as I accepted the job from my editor, and then proceeded to draw strikingly original images of Batman perched on gargoyles, hunching and moping, or flinging a Batarang. I'm told it is my take on the tired themes that will make it unique, but I am starting to think this tune can be played out sans my solo. Or maybe if I jam a little more I will stumble on a new riff. What note hasn't been played? I'm running out of blue pencil.
