Sketch Sunday: Batman

May 1939's Detective Comics #27 saw the first appearance of Bob Kane and Bill Finger's Batman. Drawing on literary adventurers such as Sherlock Holmes and The Shadow, Kane and Finger devised a potent cocktail of urban sleuthing and mysterio brutality that has seen the character twist and turn through countless tweaks and reimaginings. For this sketch scratch I hoped to evoke lo-fi avenging, a young Batman still puzzling out his kit and methods.

Year One!
