Batman & Catwoman pin-up

This was for Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight #50. As I've probably mentioned elsewhere, these pin-ups were usually wide open, with an editor calling up and asking for a drawing but leaving it to the artist to come up with an idea. I don't know where this one came from. I think I just started sketching Batman standing there and the other elements started to appear. I remember Archie Goodwin commenting on the mouse in the trap and Robin's expression.


  1. I don't know why but the inking style looks slightly different on this pinup than others. Maybe it is just me but the cross hatching on Catwoman's legs, backside, or maybe it is the increased amount of small tick lines that are being used to add depth to the pipes and such.

    Still wonderful drawing. Robin almost looks like Plastic Man as well. Can just imagine if it was PM and his neck was stretched through the window gawking.

  2. I would kill to own the original to this one...

  3. Awesome, I love it.
    I don't know exactly why, but this one makes me remember a Madman drawing you made.
