All right, so you guys know I like Batman, right? That’s not really a secret that I’m trying to hide. Another thing that I don’t really like to hide is cool art related to the character. And Austin, TX-based artist Xero has come to the task of putting together a pretty rad group of art prints of some of the best of Batman’s rogues gallery.
In a collection that the artist calls “Gotham’s Most Wanted,” Xero takes his/her own style on various villains on the caped vigilante. In this set we see Xero’s unique perspective on the heavy hitters such as Catwoman, Scarecrow, Two-Face, Killer Croc, Poison Ivy and, of course, The Joker.
But wait, that’s not all! Sure, looking at this art on the computer is all cool and everything, but you know what would be cooler? Having an actual copy of one of them that you could hang in your bedroom or office or something! Anyway, you can buy any print for just $10, and if you’re a good little boy or girl and buy all six, then you get a free print that features the crazy fan favorite villain and current Suicide Squad-er Harley Quinn! So, what are you waiting for? Head on over to Xero’s official site and pick up what you like!
Personally, I’m digging the Two-Face, Scarecrow, and Catwoman pieces. I love the gradient-styled cool tone color palette and the style of Xero’s line work, while posed, still gives a fun interpretation to some really disturbed villains. It’s a nice contrast of a poppy, happy mood with some of the most violent and dangerous villains in comics.
Check out the rest of the series and other art from Xero and affiliated artists at Scabfarm.
