Bombshell Batwoman: #52 Kate Kane
I feel in love with Bombshell Batwomans Design the moment I saw it.

I decided to style the full costume after vintage woman’s baseball uniforms and the movie A League of Their Own. I did some slight modern updates to keep it Batwomans style, like the a-symmetrical front + piping.  I hand embroidered the Gotham Knights crest on the front of the uniform and bat symbol on my hat.  I also did an overhaul on my bat which included sanding off all the logos and old finish, painting on the new design and finishing it with some fresh coats of varathane.

Tumblr, how did you miss this?

BATWOMAN #25 confirms that the Kanes of Kate Kane’s family and the Kanes which comprise Bruce Wayne’s maternal lineage are one and the same.

Jacob Kane, Batwoman’s father, is Jewish.

Therefore, Martha Wayne (nee Kane) is Jewish.

According to Judaic law, if your mother is Jewish, that makes you Jewish.

My friends.

What we have here… is confirmation.

THAT BATMAN IS JEWISH.

Batwoman of Futures End Really Takes That Bat Thing Seriously

Above is my animation of the will one day be lentricular cover of September’s Futures End: Batwoman #1where Batwoman goes vampire:

Now a creature of the night, Batwoman turns against her former lover, Nocturna, in final, deadly conflict!

Of course Kate already had the palor for a vampire, now she has the teeth.

And the certainly got the right artist - the fabulous Rafael Albuquerque of American Vampire.

The Extended Multiversal Batman Family by Nate Stockman and Simon Gough

Wow. Well, this is my largest commission to date, and possibly my favorite. This whole thing started when I commissioned Nate Stockman to draw all of the Robins for me. I loved that piece, and later asked Nate to draw most of the Bat-Ladies as a companion piece. Well, Nate made it look like those two commissions were placed on separate side of the same rooftop, so who would be in the middle? A bunch of Batmen, that’s who! The complete black & white commission is made up of seven pieces of Bristol board and it is just huge! Of course I wanted this thing colored so I hit up Simon Gough to work his magic on it, and here it is!

I cannot begin to describe how much I love this commission. Nate captured the different qualities of the various characters perfectly, from the pure fun of Dick Grayson to Damian’s attitude to AzBats’s scariness to Bruce’s confidence to Misfit’s joy to Huntress’s badassness. And just how he arranged them all together and somehow made this whole commission work even though it was never originally intended to include so many characters and be so big! My hat is eternally off to Nate. And then Simon came in and made it even more incredible with his beautiful colors! Not just the characters, but also look at that sky and the clouds and colors in it! And how the red part of the sky reflects on come of the costumes! I also love how brightly the Robins are colored and how the Batmen’s section is the darkest. Simon is one of the best colorists around, and this just helps to prove that. Nate and Simon, I love you guys forever!
