"It is said that all British classic actors sooner or later play either Hamlet or Lear, the Shakespearean roles that define the limits of their craft. Similarly, it seems that all modern comic book artists, at least those of the post-Jack Kirby generation must eventually face the challenge of interpreting the comics’ darkest icon, the Batman. George Pérez has been universally acknowledged for more than a decade as one of the field’s masters and here, at last we have his version of the Dark Knight and his protégés, Robin and Nightwing. These pieces, three of which have never appeared anywhere before, abundantly display that talent that has earned George his popularity: his sense of graphic design, his dynamic composition, his ability to infuse static images with a sense of movement and drama. George has met the Batman challenge with his own unique élan and style, and the drawings in this portfolio represent both the Batman and George Pérez handsomely."
