The Retro Batman Comic That Never Will Be

If any of you follow artist Francesco Francavilla on twitter, you know how much awesome art he pumps out on a regular basis. Francavilla is constantly drawing creative mashups, many of which I wish were real (particularly his Hellboy/Peanuts crossover). Recently he’s been doing some slick throwback Batman art to tease a fake series which is being called “Batman 1972″. Check out the “Batsploitation” below.

He also seems to love horror flicks so maybe if you nag him enough, he’ll cook up some horror illustrations. “Yes, you are witnessing the first case of BATPLOITATION,” Francavilla writes. “Hope ya dig it.”
