Batman: The Deal – A Dark And Twisted Fan-Fiction

Sunday's are a bit slow in the comic industry when there is no big convention… and as we get closer to the holidays it gets even slower. So I find myself looking around at time for stories and that's when I came across Batman: The Deal.

This isn't a DC Comics story, it's a fan-fiction created by Gerardo Preciado and Daniel Bayliss that they posted for free on their blog. The art has an almost Paul Pope feel and the themes feel like something Grant Morrison would explore… so it's interesting seeing this as fan-fiction. It also seemed appropriate to run so soon after DC released the Necessary Evil documentary.

This may not be for everyone… it may not be how you want to see Batman or Joker or even Alfred… but there is a lot of hard work in these pages and there is talent. And it is free.
