P:R Approved: Tom Edwards’ Medieval Batman!

Note: Elseworlds design or some lost relative of Bruce Wayne? Either way, this medieval redesign of Batman by Tom Edwards got Dean and I talking when we discvovered it.  I love the loose-ness of the helmet, and those shoulder-pieces with the small gargoyles hanging off the end? Wow. – Chris A.

  1. Love this. I had an entire story explode in my head when I first saw this piece. That is a testament to the artwork and design; a completely-realized character grounded in a real place, with a full history and an intriguing future. I’d buy this book, but I’d rather write it. :)

  2. If Hammer Films did a Batman movie with Christopher Lee as Bats, this is what it would be. Would Cushing be cast as the Joker??

  3. Wouldn’t Vincent Price be better suited for the part of Egghead?

    Seriously though, the helmet is what stands out the most in this piece I think. I like how the area around the nose mimics the shape of an actual bat’s nose. Aside from that, I really like how the cloak drapes around his neck and over his arms like his comic book counterpart.

  4. Nice. This is just so cool – it could be the cover of a Molly Hatchet album or something. Batman really is one of the few “superheroes” that can be adapted to any era while not straying too far from the original concept.

  5. I like how he only vaguely looks Knight-like, since whenever I see him in full gleaming armor that screams way too suspicious to me. Armor is expensive, ya’know!!!
