today i took one of my favorite comics, the dark knight returns by frank miller, and recreated one of the frames for some fun and lighting excercise. plus i batman is the coolest. though like my last post, i think this one also stems from my xbox being broken and the inability to play arkham city :( anyways, if you’ve never read miller’s batman year one or dark knight returns, do so immediately because they are gold. enjoy!
Batman, She Wrote by Dan McDaid
Over the last year I’ve commissioned Dan McDaid to draw some interesting commission pieces featuring the unlikeliest of Meet-Ups (Doctor Who (Matt Smith) VS Doctor Doom & Doctor Who (Sylvester McCoy) VS The Riddler ) .
This next piece i commissioned is with Jessica Fletcher and Batman teaming up in the unlikely tale of mystery “Batman, She Wrote”. Who is to say Jessica Fletcher wasn’t in Gotham on a book tour, Hooked up with Alfred & stumbled onto a Murder Mystery with Batman!
Dan McDaid has captured Angela Lansbury’s Jessica Fletcher perfectly, as well Bruce Wayne, Batman and Alfred. Why DC Comics haven’t snapped up Dan McDaid i have no idea. DC do it now!
If you would like to see more of Dan McDaid’s art you can check out on various websites:
His also know for his work on Doctor Who Magazine comics, did a Bizarro Feature in the Superman 80-page Giant 2011 which came out in February.
