Here’s a quick post to share some amazing artwork done very recently by the amazing comic book artist, Bill Sienkiewicz. Designer Chip Kidd commissioned this special cover on a blank “variant cover” copy of BATMAN: BLACK AND WHITE. The art was inspired by Frank Miller’s Graphic Novel,”The Dark Knight Returns” and it features Batman with his trusty sidekick, Carrie Kelley Robin!




Chip Kidd and the 13th DIMENSION Talk About #BATMAN: THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS Gallery Edition

Dan Greenfield, over at the always amazing 13th DIMENSION website, recently got together with Chip Kidd to discuss the release of Frank Miller’s BATMAN: THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS Special Gallery Edition.

For anyone who has not heard about this book it is totally amazing!  To read the full interview please CLICK HERE!

Basically what happened was DC Comics reprinted this classic graphic novel in a DELUXE FORMAT hardcover book but instead of a regular colorized “comic book” version they published it using the original art from the book. In other words, they show the black and white inked pages without color and in their original glory.

It’s pretty cool and the quality is awesome! (Disclaimer: Chip Kidd didn’t design the cover to this book)

In the interview Chip Kidd discusses how he came about to own, not one, but two of the actual pages of the original art by Frank Miller that were used for this book (shown down below).




Also, as a side note, we would like to mention that Chip Kidd did design the cover to the previous, original, reprinting of this graphic novel by DC Comics, both front and back, and we’re sharing pics of those here:




Oh yeah, if you would like a copy of the Batman: The Dark Knight Returns “Gallery Edition” book then please CLICK HERE!
