Artist Gary Frank talked to NEWSARAMA.COM
about this upcoming project with writer Geoff Johns, BATMAN: EARTH ONE
. Here’s a few excerpts…
What’s different about this Batman from the one in the DCU proper?
“He's Bruce Wayne! But look, this isn't just the story of Bruce Wayne becoming Batman in a world where people have cellphones and wi-fi. It's not just the old story in a modern setting. This is a young guy who has a long way to go before becoming the Batman that we all know and love. I don't want to get into specifics because the journey is going to be the fun part.”
On the “look” of this new Batman:
“A major thing is that his eyes are visible. That might sound trivial but it creates a very different effect. You can never forget that there is a man in there when you can see the eyes staring out. This really lends itself to the story we will be telling which is far more about the forming of the character than a cool-looking superhero doing his thing (though I'm sure we'll get to that, too).”
