With long runs on hit titles like Captain America, Daredevil, Sleeper, Fatale, Criminal and more, writer Ed Brubaker has cemented his position as one of the most prominent writers in American comics, and he got his start with superheroes with Batman.

CBMB: Batman!!!

Of course, he would post this at 5 PM! Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice director Zack Snyder just tweeted out another picture, this time of the Goddamned Batman!! Ben Affleck will portray the Caped Crusader and cuts a fine portrait of a pensive Batman. I truly believe that the more pictures we get, then the more likely we will get a Comic-con exclusive from Batman v Superman (beyond what’s been release so far), maybe a Wonder Woman picture?

REJOICE!

 

GEEK: ONE INSPIRATIONAL GEEK — DEAN TRIPPE

I’ve been listening today to a new Fatman on Batman podcast from Kevin Smith where he chats with the inspirational Dean Trippe. I had heard the name in the past, but now I know: Trippe has written and drawn a comic depicting his struggle with a childhood trauma, his love of Batman, and the way Batman eventually saved his life from this trauma.

Smith and Trippe dig into his strip called Something Terrible and his history with the Bat. Its been a great listen and an even greater joy finding his artwork online. The work is a mash-up, but beautiful melange, of Bruce Timm, Batman ’66 and Bold and Brave Batman. The artwork is vibrant, earnest, childlike, passionate, and mature all at the same time. A good reflection of Trippe as a person.

Check his stuff out for yourself!
