M.S. Corley Adorns Batman’s Rogues Gallery With Extra Fashionable Attire [Art]

Joker redesign by M.S. Corley, http://mscorley.blogspot.com

With Batman's gallery of foes being as iconic and adaptable as it is, it's not exactly rare to see an artist take a shot at doing their own interpretation of characters like the Joker and Two-Face. It is, however, a pretty uncommon treat to see them done as well, and with as much thought, as artist M.S. Corley has put into his take the Dark Knight's deadliest foes.

To be honest, the best work that Corley has done with these is in the accessorizing. That might sound weird, but the idea of the Joker wearing a straitjacket as a jaunty cloak, putting the Scarecrow in a Plague Doctor mask or giving Mr. Freeze his wife's scarf to add a touch of humanity is a really cool idea. Check 'em out, along with a few of Corley's notes, below!

Go Behind The Scenes Of ‘Batman’ ’89 With ‘The Making Of A Hero’ [Video]

Batman: The Making Of A Hero screenshot

ComicsAlliance's official position on Tim Burton's 1989 Batman movie may be a little more harsh than other people's, but even I can't deny its importance in bringing superheroes to life in movies. To this day, it remains a pretty fascinating film, and one of the biggest touchstones that comic books have to mass media, even when we're seeing movies like The Dark Knight and Avengers make a billion dollars at the box office.

So if you're holed up avoiding the snow -- or just looking for a way to kill time on your lunch break -- you could do a lot worse than to take 25 minutes and check out The Making of a Hero. Originally produced in the UK during the filming of Batman '89, it's a behind-the-scenes look at how the movie was made, featuring crew members like Tim Burton himself and designer Anton Furst, along with Michael Keaton, Kim Basinger and Robert Wuhl. Give it a watch below, but be warned: That jerk Bob Kane shows up to ruin everything.

1966 Batman Valentines Are The Purest Possible Expression Of Romance

1966 Batman Valentines, via Mark Anderson

I think it's been well established over the years here at ComicsAlliance that the purest and most beautiful way to express your love for another person is by saying it with Batman -- and apparently, we're not the only ones who think so. Thanks to the indispensable Mark Anderson, a cartoonist whose Andertoons blog is an endless source of comics ephemera, we can now have a look at a series of bizarre Valentines from the late '60s, inspired by the Batman TV show!

It's not just the Caped Crusader himself, either. It's probably to be expected that you'd get the Boy Wonder involved, but special guest villains like Zelda the Great are in there, too, and if you've ever wanted to see the romantic side of the Penguin, folks, you are in luck. Check out a few of our favorites below!

After the success of their previous Star Wars collections, Australian fashion brand Black Milk Clothing has launched their first comics-inspired collection with a number of likened Batman items. Taking a cue from the popularity of their limited Harley Quinn-inspired leggings, Black Milk Clothing designed a collection in collaboration with DC Comics and Warner Bros. that combines their signature spandex apparel with Gotham's Finest -- artists, that is, with clothing designed around images created by fan favorites including Jock, Brian Bolland, Terry Dodson, Neal Adams and Andy Kubert.  The Black Milk Clothing x Batman collection combines comics, cosplay, and style with a trompe-l'oeil Batman swimsuit (detachable cape included), a Stephanie Brown-inspired bodysuit, a Killing Joke bomber jacket and more.

In what will doubtlessly prove to be a very good move on DC Comics' part, the publisher has named Mark Doyle as the new Group Editor of its bestselling Batman line. Replacing Mike Marts, who announced a move to Marvel as Senior Editor earlier this month, Doyle will oversee the Dark Knight through the character's 75th anniversary and comes to the Bat books from Vertigo, DC's mature readers line, where he worked -- and will continue to work -- on such favorites as The Wake, American Vampire and Trillium.

Scott Snyder Talks ‘Batman’ #28 And ‘Spoiler Issue’ For ‘Batman: Eternal’ [Video]

Batman 28

We've been paying close attention to Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo's work in Zero Year, the current Batman storyline that looks back at one of the Dark Knight's earliest adventures in Gotham. But the upcoming issue #28 offers a brief intermission, jumping out of Batman's past and into his near future. Written by Snyder and James Tynion and illustrated by Dustin Nguyen, the issue offers an early look at what's to come in Batman Eternal, the weekly series starting in March. Taking to Twitter back in December, Snyder described it as a "spoiler issue": “We agreed that with all the crazy stuff that's going to happen in 2014 - and my goal above all in 2014 is to keep things daring and fun - it'd be a thrill to do a total spoiler issue," said Snyder "A stand-alone issue that takes place in the near future and reveals all sorts of massive surprises coming to Gotham.”

Snyder will be a guest on DC All Access, DC Comics' web series that features interviews with creators, editors, and more. The publisher has provided ComicsAlliance with a sneak peak at the interview, which includes a look at some of Nguyen's art, that you can check out below.

Ben McKenzie Will Play Young James Gordon On FOX’s ‘Gotham’ TV Series

Gordon Gotham Ben McKenzie

He's spent most of his career protecting California -- first as an angsty teen on The O.C. and more recently as a cop on South LAnd, but it seems Benjamin McKenzie's next stop is Gotham as a young James "Jim" Gordon. This isn't McKenzie's first rodeo either, as he voiced a young Bruce Wayne in Warner Bros. Animation's 2011 Batman Year One animated feature, which adapted the comic of the same name by writer Frank Miller, artist David Mazzucchelli, colorist Richmond Lewis and letterer Todd Klein.
