Batman and Gotham City Villains Illustrated in a 1970s Style

Batman 1972

Comic book writer and artist Francesco Francavilla has created Batman 1972 (part two), an awesome series of illustrations that imagines Batman and numerous Gotham City villains in a 1970s style.

I have been tinkering recently with a take on Batman set in that 70s styling. So, this Sunday, I give you BATMAN 1972!

To keep him in “the part”, my Batman smokes, wear a leather coat and a turtleneck, and drives a cool 70s BatMobile (an OldsMobile maybe?). I have also been developing a bit more of that story pitch for a possible Elseworlds. If that ever happens you guys are gonna dig it big time, I promise.
