First look at Becky Cloonan’s art for Batman #12

DC Comics has released the first look at Becky Cloonan’s art from Batman #12, which sees the Demo and Conan the Barbarian artist join writer Scott Snyder for a standalone epilogue to “The Court of  Owls” storyline.

“This issue is very special to me. It’s the big story that explains and explores the character you met in issue #7 – Harper,” Snyder revealed to Comic Book Resources earlier this month. “That’s the young woman who saved Batman when he tried to escape the labyrinth and ended up in the freezing Gotham bay. The mystery of who she is, why she knows Batman and the secret of their relationship…Becky read the script on the way back from the show, and just did some character sketches of Harper and her brother and the villain of the piece. She was totally on board, and I’m just over the moon about it.”

The issue, which arrives Aug. 8, also features a backup story drawn by Andy Clarke (2000AD, R.E.B.E.L.S.). Series artist Greg Capullo returns for the next arc.

Genius.

hire becky cloonan. fire capullo.

yep.

Man, I wish she didn’t giver her one of the half shaved head cuts. Every aerist that follows is going to botch it, along with the rest of her look.

I hop she’s the only one that will be drawing Harper.

And why the heck would Batman label his tech? Isn’t he concerned of being traced?

I think its pretty firmly established that Bayman is a raging narscissist.

What if these panels are out of order and she’s planting evidence to frame Batman?

Mind: blown.

Cloonin sure jumps around from project to project. Each comic is lovely. But who cares. Why can she not stay put and establish something representing a run?

Uh….She did American Virgin and Demo Vols. 1 & 2.

Those seem like a long time ago to me. Also, reasons why I’m a fan of her work. Read those, loved the artwork. Bring on more please.

Can it be??… Is it true??… Is this never ending Owls storyline actually finishing up?!? I’m in complete shock!!
