The Dark Knight for Entertainment Weekly

Nov 15th, 2008

Not all comics are about morose, gothy Canadian teenagers! Some comics are about heroic acts performed by men in tight pants. I got to do one of the latter during a week that was ruled by the former.

Truthfully, this thing was actually about a week and a half in the making. It was a MASSIVE project, what with the full-colour treatment, lettering and bajillion likenesses. To complicate matters, since this movie is not yet available on DVD and there are apparently no photos of many of the key scenes, I had to tromp out to one of the two movie theatres in NYC still playing The Dark Knight to SKETCH my reference.

I will admit, there is something thrilling about being paid to go to a movie.

Anyhow, it was a super fun albeit taxing project. I’m no Paul Pope, but I gave it the ol’ college try. *SPECIAL* thanks to Hannah K. Lee, a Parsons senior and burrito enthusiast, for being a very diligent scanning monkey. Please check out her work.

AD Eric Paul.
