BATMAN by Mitch Gerads


I've been sequestered away the last few weeks trying to meet deadlines for JOHNNY RECON #2 to debut at Springcon so I've been forced to take a few weeks off from the Twart blog.

It wasn't easy.

John Carter of Mars, Dan Dare, Johnny Quest, HAWKMAN! Then Declan went and picked Batman. Somehow I found the strength to carry on before, but the day I pass up a chance to draw Batman is the day I hang it all up.

So thanks, Declan, for pulling me out of deadline obscurity. I'll have to buy you a drink. Irish people still drink, right?

Glad to have you back, Mitch! The zipatone is used to great effect here, and I love the exaggerated anatomy.

I love the zips, the blacks, etc, but you know what really stands out?

The great way you simplified the unmasked part of his face. Perfect.

Love this piece Mitch; plays to all your strengths
