Gerard Way seized the momentum of his Eisner win for
The Umbrella Academy and pitched a Batman series to DC. Not just any wing of DC, either. Its mature-readers imprint, Vertigo. Saturday, he finally revealed some of the early designs for that never-to-be-published series, titled "Kingdom of the Mad." The art has a sort of Tim Burton-y quality to it (but more Edward Scissorhands than Batman '89), with a sort of patchwork Batman and a sinister Mr. Freeze. Check out what Way had to say about the project on
Twitter, as well as his designs, after the jump!
