DC Releases Retro 'Batman' Trailer (Video)
We're used to trailers for movies, TV shows and even (increasingly, these days) books. But trailers for comic books are still something of a rarity. Marvel Comics has done it a few times, as has Valiant, but this new trailer for the second issue of DC's Batman: Black and White raises the bar with a particularly retro glimpse at what's to come.
The trailer combines Dave Bullock's beautiful artwork for "Silent Night … Unholy Knight!" -- one of several strips from the second issue of the anthology series -- with some classic movie music to create something that's like a storyboard or animatic for the best 1940s Batman movie never made. Who do we have to convince in order to see much, much more of this?
Batman: Black and White #2 will be released October 2 in comic stores and digitally.
