Tim Burton’s Batman movies might not be my favorite version of the character, but there’s one thing they definitely have going for them: The set design is amazing, and while Anton Furst‘s designs for Batman ’89 have definitely had their time in the spotlight, Bo Welch’s designs for Batman Returns are a little less well-known.

Fortunately, pal Andrew Weiss found a design portfolio while combing through back issues of Starlog at the Internet Archive, and passed them along so that we could have a look at a nightmarish urban hellscape of rocket penguins and fascist architecture. It’s… it’s a little more enjoyable than it sounds. Check it out below!
