Newsarama talked yesterday to Rafael Albuquerque very briefly on his upcoming work in Batman while doing an interview focused on American Vampire .
Nrama: Your collaboration with him led to the work you’re doing on Batman for the back-up stories. You said you change your art style for different stories. How would you describe the style you’re using for the back-up stories you’re doing for Batman?
Albuquerque: It’s pretty similar to what I have done in American Vampire. Regular inking for the present story in issue #8, and then washes for the flashbacks in issues #9, #10 and #11.
Albuquerque: It’s situated at the end of ’70s, early ’80s, so I looked for inspiration in movies from these decades. I watched, again, Taxi Driver, The Candidate and others, just to get the feel that these movies have. Maybe the angles, timing and of course vestiments were inspired by that, as much as I could. For the Talon design, I just tried to follow the path that Greg Capullo has created.
