A Look At Rejected Tim Burton Based Batman Comic 'Batman 89'

How awesome would this have been? A Batman comic miniseries that would have served as a continuation of the Tim Burtons films.  After the success of Batman ’66, Joe Quinones and Kate Leth had hoped to revisit the Burton era in a Batman ’89 series. Sadly DC Comics passed on their miniseries pitch.

Thanks to CBR, Quinones has shared some details and proof-of-concept art from the proposal.  I hope DC have a change of heart as this looks excellent!
“Our story would have picked up the threads left by Tim Burton’s Batman Returns,” Quinones explains on his blog. “We would have seen the return of Selina Kyle/ Catwoman as well as introductions to ‘Burton-verse’ versions of Robin, Barbara Gordon/Batgirl, Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy. It also would have showcased the turn of Billy Dee Williams’ Harvey Dent into Two-Face.”
