Why this piece is awesome: There's a truckload of Wonderwoman/Batman shipping out there, so here's one featuring them kissing. It's cute and hilarious as Batman's obviously thoroughly enjoying being tied up with the lasso and kissed on his masked nose. I much prefer pics where Wonderwoman's dominant and has various other superheroes at her mercy. *g*

Why this piece is awesome: I'm sneaking one final 'Batman sitting on a gargoyle' pic in as it's still December most places on the globe! I love the moody feel to this, with the rain, and Batman hunched there all drippy in the night - see how the artist's got the rain bouncing off his head and shoulders. Looks best enlarged, for the details. And that's it for now, with the Bathunk and his cronies.

Why this piece is awesome: There are loads and loads of pics of Batman crouched with gargoyles on a rooftop, often with bats - I'm going to finish by reccing two of them. This is an especially good one, with almost monochrome colorization and very strong design and perspective. It's deceptively simple, and really striking.

Why this piece is awesome: I'm an Antipodean so this is a good Batman pic for my hemisphere at the moment. Also, very cute and funny! Robin's all annoyingly cheerful in his costume-themed waterwings and Batman's grumpy because he can't be all dark and noir in the bright sunlight, so he's hiding under a beach umbrella. Hilarious!

Why this piece is awesome: Because Steampunk - always a fave with me! But this is really great - Batman's huge and clunky with his steampunk leather and armour, and Robin's unusually troglodytic and heavy behind his goggles - you can only tell who he is by the colours he's wearing. Catwoman's in studded leather and more goggles, and the airship and Batman's bat-wings are wonderful. Enlarge it for all the excellent details.

Why this piece is awesome:
A subtly Chinese Robin and Batgirl painting, virtuoso technique and an awesome perspective of their mid-air acrobatics. Superheroes never have acrophobia, do they? Probably just as well. Robins by and large tend to be young and gracile or, in later incarnations, older and hunky. This Robin's somewhere in between. The colours are excellent, too - again, unusual for Batman art.

Why this piece is awesome: It's wonderfully lush and Catwoman's so sly and playful, queening it in her leopardskin chair. Very nice digital painting (enlarge for details and to see the technique) - her face is gorgeous and the colours are great, subtler than the usual striking blacks and whites of many Batman artworks.

Why this piece is awesome: I like process vids and love Jock's work, which I know from The Losers comics. He's a professional illustrator but this is a quick sketch that was used for charity, so I'm calling it fanart. I find it fascinating and incredibly impressive that he can create the likeness and typical Batman features so quickly and seemingly effortlessly, and I love his dark, noir style and the clever way the black and white pens are used for the detailing and buildings.

Why this piece is awesome: I like the quirkiness and simplicity - it's like a paper cutout picture and the antithesis of all the grimacing, fierce, rock-jawed, over-muscled Batmen out there. He actually is a giant bat in this, and Robin's gone feral, perched on the tree like an oversized bird. It's hilarious and a bit disturbing. Excellent stuff. Click to enlarge it a little.

Why this piece is awesome: This is like a music video in comic form, with a very effective limited palette and gorgeous, stylized integration of image/text. It's one of those comics that really makes use of what the medium can do, and it's also an interesting take on the characters (admittedly, I only have a superficial familiarity with Jason, but even so).

(Salume does gorgeous costume design and character pinup work as well; I recommend checking out the rest of her gallery.)

Why this piece is awesome: I really like the light and atmosphere in this. It has the looming Batman feel with him crouching by the gargoyles, but for once it is not night or rainy gloom, but he's backlit as if from a sunset, so there are striking, dark silhouettes without Gotham being its most depressing.
