Batman No. 25 by AlexGarner Batman No. 25 by AlexGarner
My variant cover to Batman #25.

Not my best art but perhaps my personal favorite composition to date. My editor's only requirement was that I couldn't explicitly show Batman's first generation costume which certainly made this assignment a tricky puzzle to work out. Had a lot of fun with this one.

In this Zero Year storyline, Batman is just starting his crime-fighting career and having to deal with a Gotham City in blackout prior to a major storm; lots of police zeppelins cruising the sky on lookout. The negative space the city and Batman are framing is a more abstract nod to the villain's name and looming danger ahead.

I love the "wholeness" of this one I hate doing backgrounds but you turned it into part of the art instead of filler great stuff!!
