Each page opens to the original b&w art on left, finished color art on right. Highly Recommended. By Dennis O'Neil. Art by Jerry Ordway. Beautifully adapted by two comics legends, this appeared when home video was still in its infancy and became the "rewatchable" version of the Academy-Award winning movie. For many, it opened the door to a whole new world of sequential storytelling. This celebrated retelling of hugely important, ground-breaking film is for the first time in a dedicated hardcover volume. It features the complete original artwork, using high-quality scans of Ordway's original, never-before-seen, black-and-white artwork, side-by-side with each finished full color page.

Beautifully adapted by two comics legends, this appeared when home video was still in its infancy and became the "rewatchable" version of the Academy-Award winning movie. For many, it opened the door to a whole new world of sequential storytelling. This celebrated retelling of hugely important, ground-breaking film is for the first time in a dedicated hardcover volume. It features the complete original artwork, using high-quality scans of Ordway's original, never-before-seen, black-and-white artwork, side-by-side with each finished full color page.

When Warner Bros.' Batman hit theaters in the summer of 1989, director Tim Burton's masterpiece of action, atmosphere, and art direction smashed box office predictions and rewrote the conventional wisdom on what comic book movies could achieve--both financially and artistically. In the wake of the film's success, DC Comics set out to bring as many of those moviegoers as possible into comic bookstores, and their first step was an official comics adaptation of Burton's newly minted blockbuster.

Embossed hardcover, wrap-around full color jacket painted by Jerry Ordway.
