Batman #8 Variant Cover Preview

DC Comics gives us a look at the variant cover to the upcoming Batman #8 . Artist Jason Fabok talks about his variant cover on this issue

“The description for this cover was that Batman was being tackled, or smothered by the Court of Owls .The idea of the court reaching down to Batman in a zombie like manner immediately sprang to mind.  Artistically I really wanted to play with the shadows on both Batman and the owl-masked men so I added a strong source light on one side to light the shot. I used my camera on my Macbook to get some rough shadow reference and went from there. I penciled the piece traditionally but inked it digitally on my cintiq. Peter did a great job as usual on colors. I’m very humbled to have had the opportunity to do a BATMAN cover, especially in connection with such an excellent BATMAN run.”

I can’t wait to see what the Court of Owls will do next . You will find this issue in stores on April 18th.

I'm a BIG Batman fan. Back in the day I would write scripts and get my friends together to make Batman movies. From real Batman suits to a wide collection of Batman stuff from over the years I have never have grown up when it comes to Batman. I go to Comic cons and dress up in full Batman (Nashville's Dark Knight) gear and hang out with fellow comic fans and take pictures. Hanging out with friends is always a blasty blast when they can find the time or when I can. I'm a big movie buff or at least a little buff lol. I love the extreme activities. White water rafting, playing paintball, just about anything I can get into. I have been in a few different kinds of Martial arts. Sometimes I go hunting on the family farm but its rare. When I lived in Bell Buckle I was on the BBVFD for about 5 years --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

          I don’t believe the comic book will be available in the UK it is mostly in the States. You can follow the writer of the series on twitter, https://twitter.com/#!/Ssnyder1835. He does great interviews and talks alot about the series. I’m sorry I couldn’t be of better help.
