The second hardcover volume of Batman and Robin hits stores this week and DC: The Source gives us a look of behind the scenes with the covers and with commentary about each cover by Grant Morrison:
Issues 7 to 8 of BATMAN AND ROBIN were a loose tie-in to DC’s “Blackest Night” event, written by Geoff Johns and illustrated by Ivan Reis, in which a host of dead DC superheroes returned to wreak vengeance on the living as cruel zombies.
Rather than tie directly into the main event, we chose to reflect it in a more thematic way with this story of walking dead men.
At that time, no one knew when Bruce Wayne might be returning as Batman so we wanted to make it look as if this might be the moment.
For this one, I had in mind a classic “mystery” cover like some of the Neal Adams compositions from the 1970s showing Batman investigating while some threat crept up behind him. In this case the threat was Robin himself, setting up our Batman vs. Robin storyline with what I hoped would be an intriguing image.
