Rob's Room: Batman ‘89 by Joe Quinones

Batman ‘89 by Joe Quinones 
Batman ‘89 Above is a bunch of proof of concept art I did for a Batman miniseries pitch Kate Leth (@kateordie) and I put together last year.  
Inspired by DC’s recent Batman ‘66 series, our story would have picked up the threads left by Tim Burton’s Batman Returns. We would have seen the return of Selina Kyle/ Catwoman as well as introductions to ‘Burton-verse’ versions of Robin, Barbara Gordon/Batgirl, Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy. It also would have showcased the turn of Billy Dee Williams’ Harvey Dent into Two-Face.
We had a lot of fun ideas for the series overall, but in the end it was turned down. Regardless, these were fun a lot of fun to draw and Kate and I got to bond over our love of Michelle Pfeiffer’s Catwoman.

As cool as this would have been... WHY IS THERE NOT A SUPERMAN '78 SERIES???

I read somewhere that the Poison Ivy and Batgirl here were supposedly modeled after Geena Davis and Christina Ricci, respectively. I wonder who Harley would have been based on.

@Monc - you are right! there need to be a Superman '78 series (but without Otis...)
