Incoming: BATMAN THE CAPED CRUSADER Vol 5, BATMAN THE DARK KNIGHT DETECTIVE Vol 4

Two new Batman trade paperbacks reprinting comics I lettered have arrived. CAPED CRUSADER includes BATMAN 466-473, which I lettered over Norm Breyfogle and Tom Lyle, now both sadly gone. DARK KNIGHT includes DETECTIVE COMICS 601-609 and 611, also with Breyfogle. It’s weird how, as you work along in comics day by day, month by month, year by year, you hardly think about the amount of work you’re doing. Only later, when I get reprints like this, and I’ve received many, do I think, “How did I get all that done?”

These are due out in January. Check with your comics supplier, or try the Amazon links below.

    Interesting that the cover lettering is not hand-drawn. I’m not a comic book aficionado (more of a daily comic strip kinda guy) so I’m not familiar with the current trends. I’m guessing that’s because they’re reprints rather than the originals?

    Yep, that’s what I was referring to. I suppose it looks modern but I’m hoping there’s still display text (as opposed to dialog) on the inside pages. I love well done hand-drawn text as art.
