Batman ’89 Print By Casey Callender

Wow, I was blown away by this incredible depiction of The Dark Knight from Tim Burton’s groundbreaking film and had to share it with my readers!

Casey Callender will sell this ’89 Batman print at WonderCon in Anaheim, CA next month.

The 18 x 24 print will be a WonderCon edition only and will come in an edition of 300 priced at $35 per print. The 24 x 36 prints, which do vary ever so slightly in design, will drop online and will come in an edition of 250 priced at $57 per print. Both editions come with or without credit blocks, your choice.

Here is what Casey had to say about the print:

“One of the other powerful visual elements of the ’89 Batman that stuck out for me were when Keaton would throw down smoke deterrents and disappear into the shadows….always stuck with me, so that was the basis for the print..that and well, …bats”
