John Bolton's Manbat

Manbat was a 3-issue Batman Elseworlds mini-series from DC Comics published in 1995, written by Jamie Delano and illustrated by John Bolton. As you would expect from Bolton, the whole thing was lushly painted and deserves to be seen in its full glory and unencumbered by lettering (however fine a writer Jamie Delano is... and he is!). I interviewed John for what turned out to be the final issue of Comic World (#43, Sept/Oct 1995)... but that's a story for another day. In the meantime, here's Manbat along with some of the pages as they eventually appeared.
