Jim Lee Draws Batman Variant for Justice League #1

Co-Publisher of DC Entertainment Jim Lee today shared a variant cover for the highly-anticipated revamp of the world’s greatest heroes in Justice League #1:

The variant cover was created by the DC artist trinity of Lee, inker Scott Williams and colorist Alex Sinclair, who have worked on numerous projects together for DC Comics over almost the last two decades.

Jim Lee is no stranger to drawing the Dark Knight, as he illustrated both Batman: Hush with Jeph Loeb and the oddity that is Frank Miller’s All-Star Batman and Robin, the Boy Wonder, as well as re-designing Batman and the DC Universe for the 2011 The New 52 reboot initiative.
