Jock's Awe-inspiring Splash Page From Detective Comics #876

Posted by Grey Saturday, March 26, 2011

The difference between Bruce Wayne's original Batman and Dick Grayson's latest incarnation? The former Robin makes freefall an art to behold.

Right from DC's The Source Blog, here's an awesome new splash page from DETECTIVE COMICS #876 done by Jack and Francesco Francavilla, the current art team on Detective Comics.

Here's what Jock himself has to say about the piece:

“This is a page from DETECTIVE COMICS #876 - the first issue of a new arc ‘The Hungry City’ and a great opportunity to show our Batman, Dick Grayson, in full acrobatic mode. One of the elements writer Scott Snyder and I talked about while planning our issues is Dicks gymnastic background, and how it’s important to distinguish between Bruce and Dick under the cowl. So I’m drawing a completely different Batman to the more thick set, monolithic figure I’d draw if it were Bruce Wayne.

This page called for a quick descent into Gotham, and I hope I captured some of the movement and vitality that Scott and I are keen to bring to the character during our run. I drew the art as two separate pieces so colorist David Baron has full control over the city and the figure shots as different elements. I can’t wait to see what he does with it.”
