Wired, of all places, has this nice, if short, writeup about Paul Pope and his work on the upcoming Batman: Year 100 book(s) for DC. I'm a little ashamed to say I didn't know much about this before the article, but it's one to watch for without question. Paul Pope is a modern master, and I don't think there's a comics icon better suited to his style than Batman.
Every once in awhile Marvel or DC will get it right, and on those rare occasions I'm reminded of what a goddamn shame it is that they don't do it more often.
I don't know that I've ever before devoted two straight posts to comics...odd, given my occupation.
