Arkham Knight is aiming to be the “ultimate Batman simulator,” with Rocksteady saying that the combination of the Batmobile, a Gotham that’s five times larger than Arkham City, and showing the Dark Knight at the height of his power will make the game one to remember… Can 2015 just come already!?
I have been tinkering recently with a ElseWorlds story/take on Batman set in that 70s styling. So, from the pages of PULP SUNDAY, I give you BATMAN 1972!
To keep him in “the part”, my Batman smokes, wear a leather coat and a turtleneck, and drives a cool 70s BatMobile (an OldsMobile maybe? ;) I still need to decide on brand and model.
Of course, as usually it happens in these cases, I start to flesh out all the other characters/stars of the story. Pictured above we have Selina Kyle, aka Foxy CATWOMAN, Lieutenant Jim Gordon (with period appropriate ‘stache ;)) and Ed Nygma AKA The Riddler.
Yes, you are witnessing the first case of BATPLOITATION. Hope ya dig it.
When Francesco Francavilla does anything it is pretty great but when he gets near the Bat folks it is magically great. This is so amazing I really can’t think of what else to say other than I need this series now. Oh, and he’s doing the next issue of Batwoman so don’t miss that.
