For you Bat-fans who find yourselves fixating on every last inch of Jason Fabok's Batman: Eternal Thanksgiving teaser image DC release Tuesday morning, here's a super-size version that provides a closer look at what could be important clues, teases, and Easter eggs. To see the larger version, click on the image to your right, right click and then click 'view image' or just click here.
The more scaled-down version follows below.
Also, check out this image - the oil on canvas inspiration for Fabok's image - "The First Thanksgiving 1621" by artist Jean Leon Gerome Ferris (1863–1930), believed to have been painted between 1912 and 1915.
Original story: A new image from Batman Eternal, the upcoming weekly series from DC Comics, gives hints of who we might see take center stage in the series. The spread from artist Jason Fabok was dropped into the Newsarama inbox this morning.
While characters like Tim Drake and (presumably the back of) Stephanie Brown, who we already knew would be heavily featured in the series (um, not to mention Batman) are naturals for the teaser, there are some notables here.
Batwoman (and her fiancee Maggie Sawyer) are both pictured in the image, indicating the teased closer relationship for her character with the rest of the Batman family. Joker's Daughter hides cheekily under the table, Professor Pyg (mostly unused outside of Morrison works) stands by Penguin, and of course an owl looms over them all. There's the 'ole bat-hound (but no Bat-Cow), Red Hood (Jason Todd), Tiger Shark (thanks, commenters!), Batgirl, Batwing, Catwoman, Commissioner Gordon, and more (is that blonde next to Tim there Talon, Calvin Rose?). Notably missing from the image, of course, is Dick Grayson, Nightwing, whose identity was revealed in the pages of Forever Evil. Maybe the blonde is him, under a new identity?
