Robin African American Sean Murphy Scott Snyder Detective 27

So this is pretty cool. Artist Sean Murphy (The Wake, Punk Rock Jesus) is working with longtime Batman writer Scott Snyder on a story for next year's Detective Comics #27, a special 96-page book celebrating the 75th anniversary of the Dark Knight's first appearance in the 27th issue of that series' original volume in 1939. A character in that piece will be a new Robin who will be the first African-American to wear the iconic "R" badge.

Sean Murphy Launches Kickstarter To Fund Art Book And Apprenticeships

Cafe Racer Sean Murphy

 

Sean Murphy wants to take on six up-and-coming art students as apprentices next year, but he needs a little extra money to do it.

That's why he and his wife Colleen have launched a Kickstarter to raise some educational funds. But the apprenticeships aren't all the money will go to; it will also fund the production of a 100-page book called Cafe Racer, with seven vignettes by Murphy and his students.

So That New ‘Batman: Black & White’ #1 Looks Pretty, Pretty, Pretty Cool [Preview]

Untitled-6

Originally launched in 1997, Batman: Black & White was an anthology in which DC Comics editor and art director Mark Chiarello got the best people he could find to draw and write new Batman stories with an emphasis on creative vision -- particularly that of the artists, whose contributions were enhanced both by the Dark Knight's compelling visual presence and the book's colorless format. The first run proved to be an award-winning and influential hit, bringing readers the first Batman work of Jim Lee, inspiring DC Collectibles' most popular line of statues, and leading to similarly tasteful, aesthetically sophisticated and critically acclaimed Chiarello-edited books like DC: The New Frontier, Solo, Wednesday Comics and Catwoman: Selina's Big Score.

Then after the last Black & White short story was published as a backup in Batman: Gotham Knights, Chiarello readied an all-new volume of Batman: Black & White that's basically the same deal but with different creators. As with the original, the new roster is a mix of the top artists of today and accomplished masters, including ComicsAlliance favorites like Joe Quinones, Sean Murphy, Neal Adams, Chris Samnee and Michael Cho, with covers by Marc Silvestri and Phil Noto. The book goes on sale this week but courtesy of DC, you can take an early look at some preview pages below.
