Batman 186 (A) Dave Taylor
So, first to deliver the goods was Dave Taylor. Dave has been a top bloke to me, what with producing a piece for my old characters project and a lovely robot design for an ad i was producing. I follow his Blog anyway but, as soon as he started on his "Batman, Death By Design" project, and seeing from the teaser images he was putting what a fan of the character he was, i knew i had to contact him to see if he was up for this. He sure was, although i'd have to wait till his decks were cleared. Well, wasn't too long to clear them and here's what he's come up with! Dave did an interesting thing with Bats, a sort of halfway point between the Infantino 60's original and his "Death By Design" version. His Joker also seems to be a hybrid between the original and his take on the fella seen in that Arkham special a while back. He's really gone to town on the lil' guy though, which is great as he was the focal character for me as a nipper. But this one is far more menacing and downright strange than the original. Love it!
