CALL OF THE KNIGHT
ABOUT THE IMAGE: This dark and twisting cover image of The Caped Crusader, was created by DC Comics cover artist, Simone Bianchi.
The image is taken from Batman Detective series, #821-826, written by famed animation writer, Paul Dini.
“Call of The Knight” illustrates Bianchi’s dark, yet detail-oriented style. In this image of Batman, we readily observe the vigilante’s tension as he grasps the line attached to his grappling gun.
