The Man Himself

I'm showing my age again... here's the Batman--not Bruce Timm and Paul Dini's, not Cliff Chiang's, not Christian Bale's, or Michael Keaton's. Not Bill Finger's, or Jim Lee's, or Alex Ross's, or Dustin Nguyen's, or Jeff Matsuda's, or Jeph Loeb's or Grant Morrison's, or Brian Bolland's. Not Bob Kane's, not Frank Miller's, and not even Darwyn Cooke's or Kevin Conroy's.

I love all those versions of Batman--but to me, this is the guy. The Batman of Dennis O'Neil and Neal Adams:

He's lean, he's mean, he's blue and grey, and he's got the yellow oval (though I drew it a tad too big). And I'm waffling... he might sound like Kevin Conroy.
