Batman & The Joker by French artist Jock.
The Joker illustration is AMAZING!!! I would hang that on my wall if there was a print of it!
“Oh, yes! Fill the churches with dirty thoughts! Introduce honesty to the White House! Write letters in dead languages to people you’ve never met! Paint filthy words on the foreheads of children! Burn your credit cards and wear high heels! Asylum doors stand open! Fill the suburbs with murder and rape! Divine madness! Let there be ecstasy, ecstasy in the streets! Laugh and the world laughs with you!”
Italian artist Denis Medri’s designs for a rockabilly take on the Dark Knight with some inspired 1950s Americana reinterpretations of Gotham’s heroes and villains. His version of Two-Face — who is a “mix of Richie Cunningham and a Evil Fonz” — might just be the most affably ridiculous thing we’ve seen all day. Here are some other character-specific design notes from Medri:
- The Penguin is “a sort of entrepeneur fish industry import/export with criminal attitude.”
- Poison Ivy is channeling Seymour from Little Shop of Horrors.
- Joker is rocking the Teddy Boy style.
- Catwoman is modeled on Bettie Page.
AMAZING! I love it! I would love to see a series on this!
