Who’s your favourite Batman artist? Over the years, many an artist have put their signature touch on the Dark Knight. Neal Adams re-energised the campy crusader into an international force of justice, Norm Breyfogle brought a unique sense of style and movement to the 1990s Batman, David Mazzuccheli created the definitive rookie vigilante and Greg Capullo’s current four year run with the hero has resulted in a dark but human take on the character.
And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. I haven’t even mentioned Bruce Timm, Alex Toth, Paul Pope or Don Newton. One of my personal favourite Batman artists however, will always be Lee Bermejo. There’s a certain sense of darkness to the heightened reality that his Batman projects, who truly feels like a nightmarish persona of a damaged individual.
Now imagine being on the wrong side of such a Batman, who also happens to be especially grumpy on the night before Christmas. That’s the idea behind Batman: Noel, which placed a Dark Knight spin on a Christmas Carol. Yes, Batman was essentially Ebenezer Scrooge, but with more leather, Batarangs and fist-based justice. It was awesome.
It’s a great book, with a great design for the Batman. And it’s that design which is just popping in this Prime 1 replica. The catch here however, is that the Lee Bermejo design has been applied to the Batman model from Batman: Arkham Origins. It’s a hybrid of sorts, but one that I MUST HAVE. Christmas gift idea, nudge nudge wink wink say no more guv’na:
“I’m going to scare him. scare him so badly he doesn’t dare ever follow in his father’s footsteps”
