NOW THAT'S WHAT I CALL A SPLASH PAGE: Kelley Jones Batman

Splash pages, you gotta love 'em. A blank canvas where the artist can hit you with a large dose of illustrated 'wow'.

This splashie comes from Kelley Jones amazing artistic run within DC's Bat-universe.

Kelley made Batman a true spectre of the night, elongated limbs and a cape that almost became a character in itself.

Every drape and every fold made you think that the Dark Knight was a nightmarishly fun character that you might have found during Jones' run on Sandman.

Unlike nightmares though, when Kelley Jones pencils art like he currently is on DC's Swamp Thing mini-series the visions never leave you and never stop being amazing.

  1. Scenes like this definitely show that Mr.Jones was born to draw Batman.
    Love his whole Vampire Batman trilogy.
