Batman BLACK AND WHITE #1 hits the shelves today. There's an 8 page story by me and John Arcudi from BPRD in there.
When we talked about the story, I told John, "I want to draw the Batmobile! Give me a story where Batman is a gearhead. And I want a 2 page spread of him tooling away in the Batcave, parting out other supercars to fix the Batmobile!" and John delivered. We needed a villain, so I threw out the idea of Roxy Rocket from the animated series. I found a 3-wheeled Morgan racing car that looked like a WW2 plane which fit her PERFECTLY, and we got started.

Normally I do a single page in a day, but the Batman stuff took me 2 days each with all the planning and detail. I wasn't thrilled with them when I first finished--felt they looked overdone. But now that I've had some distance with it (I drew it last year), I think it looks good.
