Norm Breyfogle: Batman Beyond Unlimited

Posted by Tom Mason Categories: Editorials, DC Comics,

Batman Beyond UnlimitedI’ve loved Norm Breyfogle’s art ever since I first saw it years ago when he was drawing Batman.

Later on, I got to meet him when he was drawing Prime for Malibu Comics’ Ultraverse (he designed the character and I was lucky enough to be around to see all his sketches).

Still later, I got to work with him directly when he did some character designs for a superhero project that Chris Ulm and I were pitching around.

Now, after some time working for Archie Comics, Norm is back on Batman in the newly relaunched Batman Beyond Unlimited title from DC, edited by another pal Jim Chadwick.

The first issue goes on sale in February, and Norm posted an interior page from it on Facebook (you can see it over there on your right).

I think it’s beautiful and I can barely wait for this to hit the stores, or, more realistically, my iPad.

In an interview with Bill Baker at The Morton Report, Norm says: “I will say that it’s fun to be drawing a Batman title that isn’t mired in the complex continuity of the DCU. Adam Beechen [the series’ writer] and I feel a lot of freedom to play with all the related characters because of that. I’m also having fun drawing the future Gotham City, designing flying cars, architecture, etc.”
