The Funky, Retro Stylings of Francesco Francavilla's Batman 1972

tumblr_mnfw7tML9Y1ssmbizo2_1280

Acclaimed comics artist Francesco Francavilla shares a vision of the Dark Knight that's more reflective of the 70s than the actual Batman books they published in the 70s.


Francavilla's made a name for himself on eclectic projects like Afterlife with Archie, Black Panther, and his own creation The Black Beetle. In this drawing series, he imagines a Gotham of mutton-chopped detectives and cigarette-chomping vigilantes. You can check out Francavilla's tumblr and follow him on Twitter @f_francavilla.
