    Default Rian Hughes' Rather Backwards Cover For Batman



    From the Comica series of events last week, Rian Hughes' rather remarkable looking cover to his upcoming Batman comic for DC Comics.

    Is it a mini or a one shot? Release date? Who is the writer? The cover has me very interested, but more info please.

    I wrote about it a couple of weeks ago http://comicsbeat.com/on-the-scene-dundee-comics-day/ (spoilers removed, obv)

    Hughes finished with a “top secret project” he has recently completed that he wasn’t allowed to say much about but had “special dispensation” to show some pictures from. What followed was a few very intriguing pages indeed of a Batman story, the first Batman that Hughes has “written and drawn”. It features the Neoplastic Man who speaks in complete anagrams, and Tal-Dar, an older character that featured in the first Batman comic Hughes read when he was younger. The pages are gorgeous, with suitably clever design. All very intriguing!

    When I first began my internet journey lo so many years ago my wife said that as long as I didn't use a Bat reference for the email and such she was fine. I came up with "namtab" which she approved only to later realize it was Batman spelled backwards.
