Apple, Batman, and Birthday: VOLUME ONE Good evening Gothamites and I hope you all had a spectacular Sunday! This week we'll have more of our session "What's In That Utility Belt: A History of Batman Gadgets" and more discussions about the evolution of the Caped Crusader! I leave you tonight with the now iconic cover to Batman (Vol 1) 497 and Batman: Knightfall Vol 1 by one of my favorite illustrators, Kelley Jones, who is celebrating his 55th birthday today (July 23)! Known for his Batman runs in the 1990s with writer Doug Moench, Jones has worked on several non-continuity Batman series including "Batman: Dark Joker the Wild" and the Vampire Batman Elseworlds saga beginning with "Batman and Dracula: Red Rain". Both of these comics were very dark and moody, bringing the Batman comic into the horror genre. Jones drew the covers for many of the chapters of the "Batman: Knightfall" crossover storyline as well (cover presented), then became the penciler of Batman with issue 515 (1995 - 1998) and worked on such story arcs as "Contagion". Going for style and mood over realism, Jones' is known for drawing Batman's ears incredibly long, giving him a demonic look and truly bringing the fear to the character's aesthetic that the Dark Knight himself strikes into the hearts of criminals. πŸ¦‡LISTEN ON ITUNES: http:-apple.co-2tCeD4pπŸ¦‡to my podcast interview with Kelley Jones discussing his decades long contributions to the Batman mythology, be sure to listen and explore this artist's creative process! Thanks for following and we'll have more History of the Batman soon! Remember Gothamites, it's all about Peace, Love and Batman! βœŒπŸΌπŸ’™πŸ¦‡πŸŽ¨πŸŽ‰
