Star Variant: Detective #994 Brooks Variant

Mark Brooks has produced a lot of great variants for the recent run of Detective Comics but this one particularly stands out. There is nothing new about Batman comics referring back to Bruce’s childhood trauma. Maybe we all have to keep reading about that a bit too often? Maybe some of us even think he should be a bit more like Dick Grayson or Barry Allen and stop whining so much. At least he has all that money!

Anyway, we don’t actually see it used as a cover art scene too often. Brooks has done this one really strikingly and with emotion. I really like the tight frame diamond composition and the colour palette.
