Alex Ross' Batman's 75th Anniversary Art


And while Batman's 75th Anniversary happened circa 2014, this would be the first time I'd laid my eyes on Alex Ross' rendition of the classic Batman & Robin, alongside his menagerie of villains from the classic 60's television live action series! The ripping muscles reminded me of Joe Jusko's artwork too (first seen on my trading cards from the 90s :p).


How glorious when we get to see renewed & remixed interpretations of older imagery, which sometimes parallels that of folks - both Western and Eastern filmmakers - re-adapting & re-harshing old favourites! Most times missing the magic mark of the past... sometimes (but very rarely) hitting a new mark.

I personally like seeing re-interpretations (well, for most), although I am not speaking for everyone out there! And while the results might or might not be what I expect, I know I can still somehow go back to the "originals" (via DVD or whatnot) at any time! So I am good and willing to see new explorations :)
