After showcasing Batman new costume, as illustrated by Jim Lee, Scott Williams and Alex Sinclair, alongside several other “Rebirth” revamps, DC Comics has provided CBR with a look at Greg Capullo‘s original design.
As you can see below, the art comes in two versions, one with annotations, and the other without. The notes point out such details as the full nose on the Caped Crusader’s cowl, “reminiscent of the ‘Dark Knight Returns’ and the 1943 serial,” the yellow outline around the chest emblem, purple lining inside the cape, and a “bat-like” belt, with a fang shape in the front.
DC’s “Rebirth” initiative launches late next month with the “DC Universe: Rebirth” one-shot written by Geoff Johns and illustrated by Gary Frank, Ivan Reis, Phil Jimenez and Ethan Van Sciver. Every DC Universe title will relaunch with a new #1 issue, except for “Action Comics” and “Detective Comics,” which will return to their original numbering.
The initiative will also see the introduction of new looks for many of DC’s comics, only some of which CBR showcased on Friday.
Capullo and writer Scott Snyder concluded their lengthy and acclaimed run on “Batman” this week with Issue 51. With “Rebirth,” writer Tom King and artists David Finch and Mikel Janin will take the reins on the series, while Snyder will collaborate with a roster of illustrators that includes John Romita Jr., Jock, Sean Murphy, Tula Lotay and Declan Shalvey on “All-Star Batman.”
Capullo, meanwhile, as teamed with Mark Millar on a project that has yet to be revealed.
