Back in the day we were amazed at the brilliance that was Andy Kubert’s covers for Grant Morrison’s Return of Bruce Wayne. They were beautiful in their black and white; so much so that I almost didn’t really care if we ever saw them coloured.
Well, that’s changed.
Today over at the DCU Blog, the good folks have uploaded all six covers, coloured and connected, showing off the masterful job that Kubert did by stylistically and subtly connecting each cover with the batsymbol.
Here’s what they had to say:
“We had a great time showcasing Andy Kubert’s amazing pencils to the six BATMAN: RETURN OF BRUCE WAYNE covers. And some of you figured out that when put together, the covers form one over-arching image. So, it’s a no-brainer to want to showcase the covers together in all their glory. And because it’s Friday, we’re unveiling Andy’s handiwork all at once. So click on the thumbnail below to see BATMAN: RETURN OF BRUCE WAYNE #1-6 as one magnificent piece of art.”
