The Good, the Bat and the Ugly: Giovanni Costa’s Spaghetti Gotham

Well, these are delightful: Superhero design blog Project: Rooftop linked to the blog of Italian artist Giovanni Costa, who has recreated a sizable chunk of the Batman cast in a Western mode. Costa has a delightful style, a little bit DePatie-Freleng, a little bit Genndy Tartakovsky, and he’s clearly put plenty of thought into the conceptualizing of the project (Bartender Alfred — genius!). Examples a-plenty below.



This. Is. Brilliant.

Reminds me a lot of the art of Jorge Gutierrez. Which I mean as a huge compliment.

Where’s the Joker!?


Seriously, I would totally watch a cartoon of that.
