A Dark Knight On 42nd Street. WOW!

From the mind of creator Francisco Francavilla, comes one of those design ideas that DC Comics could've used a long time ago--- a 70's Exploitation/Grindhouse version of the iconic Batman! Initially nothing more than a filler for Francavilla's PULP SUNDAY blogsite, has blossomed into a growing fanfare of curiousity... Yours truly, THE INFAMOUS RODBUDDAH, included. Francavilla's story pitch for the character is an Elseworld-style take on the character, as filmed by iconic exploitation giant, Amercian International Pictures. It even comes with a 'Pam Grier styled Selina Kyle' and a wild handlebar mostauched Lt. Gordon! If DC green lights, we could possibly see the Graphic Novel format by year's end.

As much as I rant on the BIG 2 (among other funny people and places), I'm a sucker for great Grindhouse (the last vestage of wildly creative entertainment from a bygone era), and coupled with the Dark Knight is a NO-BRAINER indeed!
