EXCLUSIVE!: The Poster Posse Ventures Into Uncharted Territory With PHASE 4 Of Our 75th Anniversary Tribute To Batman

POSTER POSSE_LOGO-23

When we say “uncharted territory” we are referencing the fact that we have NEVER done a project of this magnitude.  A 4th phase….are we crazy?  NOPE!  We have a TON of amazing art to share with you today.

For today’s bonus Bat offering we want to share an incredible animated short by none other than Bruce Timm.  Bruce has given DC fans some amazing work over the years with projects like “Batman: The Animated Series”, “Superman: The Animated Series”, “Batman Beyond”, “The New Batman/Superman Adventures“, “Batman Beyond: Return Of The Joker,” “Justice League”, “Justice League Unlimited”, and “Green Lantern: The Animated Series” just to name a few.  Take a look at his animated short that celebrates the 75th Anniversary of Gotham’s sworn protector.

My only problem with that short is that I wish it was longer. We absolutely love it. Ok, let’s get back to some more amazing Batman art. First up is a stunning piece by Andrew Swainson!

Andrew Swainson – U.K.  This one screams 1939 and it’s hard to believe that it ISN’T a vintage print.

Doaly – U.K.  “For the two main pieces I wanted to visualise the cover of an original Batman graphic novel that looked closer upon the triggers that made the man.”

David Brener – U.S.A. (Guest artist)  David has been a huge supporter of the Poster Posse with his website, I GOT BIRDS and on his podcasts.  We asked him about  the Batman mythos and here is what he had to say.  “Being a long-time comic book collector, Batman has always appealed to me ever since Frank Miller’s “The Dark Knight Returns”. I like the grim and gritty take on Batman as a character, and being that he is someone who is obviously VERY psychologically tortured, the darker Batman is a wonderful way for creators batman-arkhamcityto let their minds run wild with dangerous scenarios in which to place him. To me, Batman was never this shining protector of Gotham. He was and still is an unstable individual who fights on the side of good. He’s obsessive, and I like that about him. My take on Batman comes from the idea that his cape could be a living thing. Surrounding him, cloaking him, and becoming almost an entity of it’s own. I like the fact that the viewer can’t be certain if Batman is emerging from his cape, or from the darkness enveloping him. Happy 75th Anniversary, Batman! Here’s to all the writers and illustrators who have added so much to the mythos that is The Dark Knight.

Paul Ainsworth – Canada  “Salvador Anguiano and I are huge McFarlane fans so we were swapping ideas along the way. The cape is a direct nod to Todd haha God I hate rhyming.”  Here are a couple of shots of Paul’s W.I.P.S. and I’d have to say that McFarlane DOES do the best capes….

BLACKMASK

“Black Mask” by Luke Butland – U.K.  “It has been 75 years of the Bat and over that time he has faced of against some of the most iconic villains in comic book history. These villains have helped mould and shape the Batman universe into what it is today, They have broke him, beat him and in some cases loved him. With this series I wanted to focus on these villains and give each of them the spotlight in their own individual prints. I give you The Rogues of Gotham City !!”

Juan Hugo Martinez – U.S.A.   “Batman 75 years. This was such a great opportunity to to pay an homage to one of my favorite and ultimate comic characters. My main focus was to adapt everyone in a whole different way, while using inspiration from all the comics,animated series,films through out the 75 years of existence.”

    I hate to say this but why would you even start this if we can’t buy any of the posters? At least make the fireplace one from the previous phases available.

      I was just talking about this with all the artists and the word “prints” IS misleading. These projects are ‘online galleries’ and not all of them get made into prints. If an artists DOES have enough demand to make prints then I shall post the link under their image. The image YOU are referring to is by Adam Rabalais and I agree, it’s highly desirable.
