Hoo doggy! I think one of the most fun series of the year is also gonna wind up claiming the title of best interlocking covers of the year, or, as I like to call it, The Mondo Mural Award. Andy Kubert has not taken the easy way out; he's not connected every little particle of art (partarticle?) with each other, but instead opted for a grander, more subtle treatment: the extended symbol of the Bat stretching across the covers, across the centuries. I'm in awe, Mister K. It's beautiful and not obvious at all...a nice visual fit for the intricate and nuanced writing of Grant Morrison.
Let's all take another awe-filled gander at it unadorned: without the typography, huh?
Welcome back, Batman. But hey, dude: send some dang postcards next time, huh?
