Batman: The Return of Bruce Wayne - Six Coloured Covers

Over the last couple of weeks or so DC's The Source have unveiled Andy Kubert's amazing pencils to each of the six covers from the forthcoming series Batman: The Return of Bruce Wayne.

Yesterday The Source published all six of the covers - beautifully coloured - as one single, interconnected image: click here to see the image in full.

One word: stunning.

Meanwhile, over at
IGN both Andy Kubert and Grant Morrison spoke about how the creations came about, details about each iterations design elements and how the designs themselves then reflected on the series plot.

Throughout this lengthy and detailed feature we're treated to numerous Andy Kubert sketches and layouts as well as a design for Batman that was never used.

Onde of the most interesting and insightful features I've read in a long time - well worth taking the time to read.
