New Batman sample comic pages that I created for NYCC. I decided to use the character designs for Arkham City because 1. I loved playing Arkham Asylum and 2. Just to do something a little different. Although, looking back on it, my colors drifted back closer to the classic comic designs than the new ones, but oh well. Catwoman was fun to draw.
This one was inspired by the Batman:TAS episode "Dreams in Darkness" and that Joker line from TDK that is written on the walls there.
I hope this pic will make you guys think about all those questions that make the Batman character so fascinating. Like,for example,how close is Batman to being a lunatic himself and where is that thin line between insanity and reason,between a vigilante and a hero? And was the Joker in The Dark Knight right when he said that the police need Batman now,but when they don't,they will cast him out - like a leper...? I would love to hear your thoughts on that.
