Batman art

leave a comment »

The above is one of my favourite pieces of Batman-related comicbook art. It’s by the great Alex Ross. It captures some of the essential qualities of the Batman character – his obsessive devotion to his self-imposed crusade, even at the expense of his own well-being, and his near masochistic embrace of pain and risk, and the rigours of his bodily training which allow him to live daily with the pains that he literally carries on his shoulders . It’s also a testament to the visual realism of Ross. If you spent your nights as a vigilante, fielding stabs and bullets, even if you’re wearing kevlar, your body would look like a mess.
