Batman '72

I love Francesco Francavilla's bold retro style. In years of collecting comics, his variant editions of Warlord of Mars: Fall of Barsoom are the only books I bought just for the covers. I also love Steve McQueen movies and any flick where the car gets more lingering cheesecake shots than the girl. So obviously, I double-love Francavilla's Batman '72 concept, which re-imagines Batman as a grimy 70s cop movie.

Francalilla has several more Batman '72 pictures his blog, including a gloriously porn-stached Lieutenant Gordon. He also mentions, "I have also been developing a bit more of that story pitch for a possible Elseworlds." I, for one, would just start throwing money at DC if they decided to publish that.
