Frank Miller's monstrous, huge, fatass old goddamn Batman. My favorite Batman ever.

I've been playing the shit out of Arkham City lately, so there...

The detail, the lighting, everything is absolutely marvelous about this piece.  How long did it take to paint this?

Looks amazing. Definitely brings to life his vulnerability as an old man, yet doesn't neglect his fierce determination and menacing power.

This is both badass and terrifying. When ever they decide to do another Batman reboot, I hope this is the direction they go in. Don't glamorise Batman in anyway, just show him as a battered and monstrous creature of the night who can take ridiculous amounts of punishment and can out think all his enemies.

This is such an amazing piece that captures the frightening aspects of Batman so incredibly well, especially Miller's Batman.

This is so brilliant... it's kind of scary. You did a perfect job fleshing out the most badass Batman to exist.

This Batman is so badass, that the main universe can't handle him. He would everyone look like incompetent pansies.

He dressed up like a crazy old woman, beat the shit out of Superman, survived a heart attack, recruited and reformed an army of teenage psychopaths. Miller's Batman is the MAN.

Hell yeah. He also made the Mutant Leader, the most dangerous criminal in Gotham, his bitch.
