So, working at a comic shop and being an avid lover of all things comics, from time to time I stumble upon comics covers that are just humorous. From time to time I will post my “critiques” of these (I’m looking at you, Greg Land).
Just a note, I can’t draw. I am not an artist. I am not judging these covers to say I am better than the artists or that the artists aren’t talented. I just like riffing on stuff. If you are offended, get a sense of humor.
Anywho, this time is one I’ve been meaning to post about for a while. It is an older cover from the Batman Eternal series. For the uninitiated, Batman Eternal is a weekly title featuring the caped crusader. Each week, the cover is just… abysmal… Like, bad… I don’t know if it’s the deadlines, timeframe or the amount of covers the artists have to pump out, but they are quite awful. Here is what the cover of #32 looks like:

Based on this cover, I can only assume the following is what takes place within the comic itself:

Anywho, hope everyone had a good weekend. ‘Til next time!
