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

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.

It’s dark and gritty, much like the cop dramas of the period, and a damn sight from the colourful panels of the real Batman pages. Imagine if, instead of Dirty Harry‘s .44 Magnum, Clint Eastwood donned the cape and cowl–then you will have something similar to this madness.
