MIKE ALLRED’s Brilliant BATMAN Cover Is the Best This Year

Love that purple sky!

I’ve gotten so used to seeing Mike Allred draw the Adam West Batman over the years that it was a special surprise when I saw his upcoming variant cover for the new Batman: The Audio Adventures #1, due Sept. 27.

I mean, check this out:

That’s just about the platonic ideal for classic, creature-of-the-night Batman, is it not? And dig Laura Allred’s note-perfect color palette.

Meanwhile, you should also check out the main cover by Dave Johnson, which is also superb:

But hey, turnabout’s fair play: As it happens, Johnson has produced the year’s best Superman cover — a variant for Mark Russell and Allred’s Superman: Space Age #2. Click here to check that out.

Right on.
