In the world of comics there are a few images that are instantly recognizable. Like the cover of Action Comics #1 from the 1930’s for instance. If you are a Superman type of person I can just mention that cover and the image of it comes into you head.
Recently Greg Capullo and Scott Snyder have done a Zero Year story line on Batman were they have been able to pull a few old images from the original 1930’s Detective Comics and put them in their book. The one I of course recognized was the cover of Detective Comics #1 with a new spin on it, involving it directly in their story.
So I was thinking about that the other day and took a crack at it as well. Here is what the original and Greg’s looks like, and then my own too.
