Batman by Patrick Gleason
All leading up to eventual Justice League film in 2017. Lots of details at the site if you follow the link. I’m excited, and as you might expect given my reaction to Man of Steel, a little nervous.

These are beautiful and really capture the art of what makes comics inspiring to so many.
Here’s the original concept sketch for Wonder Woman by H.G. Peter (circa 1941), including handwritten notes between the artist and writer William Moulton Marston:
- “Dear Dr. Marston, I slapped these two out in a hurry. The eagle is tough to handle - when in perspective or in profile, he doesn’t show up clearly — the shoes look like a stenographer’s. I think the idea might be incorporated as a sort of Roman contraption. Peter”
- “Dear Pete - I think the gal with hand up is very cute. I like her skirt, legs, hair. Bracelets okay + boots. These probably will work out. See other suggestions enclosed. No on these + stripes - red + white. With eagle’s wings above or below breasts as per enclosed? Leave it to you. Don’t we have to put a red stripe around her waist as belt? I thought Gaines wanted it - don’t remember. Circlet will have to go higher - more like crown - see suggestions enclosed. See you Wednesday morning - WMM.”
The original drawing sold for $33,350 in 2002.

I love Tim Sale’s Superman. Classic yet powerful.
Stylish and nerdy today. (A bday gift from friends.)
