I really like Batman Eternal # 25.
The first thing that caught my attention was the outfit of the character depicted in this cover: leather jacket, kevlar on his chest, countless pouches all around his waist, a gun in his right hand… no matter if they’re good or bad, all the characters of action packed comics wear EXACTLY this outfit, so he instantly pleased my eye.
And then I looked under him, and I noticed another classic action packed detail: flames. In this case there’s an entire city burning, not just a warehouse or the general quarter of a mafia boss, so the dramatic power of this image is much bigger than usual.
Thirdly, the colouring is brilliant. I love the various tones of yellow and orange used for the buildings and the sky: not only because they increase the aesthetic value of the image, but also because they make the character stand out even more.
Silver medal for Batman Beyond Universe # 14 and bronze medal for Amazing Spider – Man # 1.5.
“I really like Batman Eternal # 25.”
Fantastic synopsis. Anytime you see the villainous Hush on a cover you know things are going to get personal and that Batman is in for quite a challenge indeed. The only thing I would add is mentioning the great detail of him holding Batman’s empty cape and cowl in his other hand, a rather ominous inclusion and one that hints that our hero may have met his match.
