The Kate Leth/Joe Quinones Tim Burton-Style Batman '89 Comic That DC Turned Down


Posted by Joe Quinones to his blog yesterday…  Batman '89.


Which he describes as,

 a bunch of proof of concept art I did for a Batman miniseries pitch Kate Leth and I put together last year.


Inspired by DC's recent Batman '66 series, our story would have picked up the threads left by Tim Burton's Batman Returns. We would have seen the return of Selina Kyle/ Catwoman as well as introductions to 'Burton-verse' versions of Robin, Barbara Gordon/Batgirl, Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy. It also would have showcased the turn of Billy Dee Williams' Harvey Dent into Two-Face."

We had a lot of fun ideas for the series overall, but in the end it was turned down. Regardless, these were fun a lot of fun to draw and Kate and I got to bond over our love of Michelle Pfeiffer's Catwoman.

Which of course is ironic, considering what's happening in the main Catwoman title...
