Man-Bat Vs. Werewolf By Night






































Something about both of these guys always appealed to me.  Maybe it was the fact that despite the bestial forms that they were known to assume, they would always keep their pants on.  Sure, it may have had more to do with the Comics' Code than anything else, but I always preferred to believe that those jeans were a symbol of their humanity trying to break through. Whatever the reason, they looked cool!

Great cover, Ross! Hmmm, maybe you should put together a group of martial artists... :)

how about a pairing of Man-Bat and Moon Knight?

I think that one is a safe bet...

Do you remember The Batman Family where Kirk developed another transformation into a were-jaguar? Right around the time Alfred came back as The Outsider.

I never liked it that Kirk was turned into a villain.

Excellent pairing! I've been a Man Bat fan since he first appeared. There was a very good Batman vs. Werewolf story around the same time and I wished at the time that they had found a way to put the two together. Now you've done something even better!

Jim Aparo Man Bat! Doesn't gett any better than that. How about teaming up Bronze Tiger & Black panther if you haven't done so Ross.

There's a 3-part tale coming up in a couple of weeks that you should like, Isaac...

Excellent cover! And I agree that Man-Bat should not be treated like a villain. If anything he's like a more intelligent Hulk, and doesn't trust other people.
I did wish to mention that I saw the picture of you at a convention and had some of your covers made into t-shirts. Awesome idea! But I was wondering if you can actually sell the patterns to be used. I noticed that one of the t-shirt selling sites online, TeeFury, that designers can submit new art to be used. But since you take images from comic book companies, does that mean that it would be a copyright infringement? They do seem to have quite a few book, tv, and movie genre t-shirts, several of which are crossovers. Anyway, I just wanted to mention it. Plus, I would buy a few t-shirts myself, oh course. I just don't know how I could limit it to just a few.

Unfortunately, I think it would definitely be a copyright nightmare!
