Francesco Francavilla harkens back to the golden age of cinematic afros with his Batspoitation project “Batman 1972”.
The bat himself becomes a fashion icon, chain smoking and posing with his ride. Riddler gets a pimpin’ set of furs, Jim Gordon gets a gloriously retro moustache, and Catwoman makes us long for the Eartha Kitt reboot that never was.
Apparently he also has a potential storyline in mind for these images – meaning, if the gods are good, we just might get the ’72 Batman as an Elseworlds graphic novel. We live in hope.
