Detective Comics Issue 1000 Variant Cover

I was asked to draw a variant cover for the 1000th anniversary issue of Detective Comics.  Similar to the Action Comics issue 1000 cover, DC asked artists to draw covers based on various decades.  I was assigned the 1950's, which gave me the opportunity to draw all the various zany iterations of Batman that permeated that era.  This cover took a lot of research, but was a lot of fun.

My wife, Claudia Davila, helped me with the typography, and we laid out all the cover elements including the logos and text boxes ourselves.  You can see a version of the art without those elements below.
