Andy Clarke Named Next Artist On Batman & Robin

After Cameron Stewart's three issue run.

Batman And Robin is the Batman book that most people keep their eyes on.  It was announced back in September  that Cameron Stewart would take over the art duties after Philip Tan for three issues.  
DC has announced that Andy Clarke will be working with Grant Morrison after Stewart.  No word on what characters Clarke will get to draw or how many issues he'll be on.  Based on the images DC has shared, it looks like it's going to be an exciting time.
Clarke has recently worked on R.E.B.E.L.S. and some issues of Batman Confidential.  He should be able to ease into the role of drawing the Dynamic Duo with no problem.
If you're wondering what Cameron Stewart's take on the title will look like, DC also posted some images for your enjoyment.  (Click to enlarge:)

Love his R.E.B.E.L.S. work. His style is a lot like Gary Frank's.

I don't like Cameron Stewart's stuff for this book AT ALL!  So far, the content of the Batman & Robin books has been...a bit disturbing.  Not very light-hearted stuff, but not exactly "mature" content either in comparison to stuff like Vertigo.  Regardless, you've got a dood replacing people's faces...another dood eating people's faces, etc etc.  I don't know.  maybe it's just that stupid hat on Robin that's driving me nuts...

Looks great! the art (and the BN tie in) are the only things i really like about Rebels. And boy do i love me some Squire! bring it!

I don't know, his Dick Grayson looks a little too much like the old-school Batman. Like 1940's old-school. And Dick's torso looks really disproportionate in that first image. Not that I care all that much, I'm sure it'll be fine.

What did Dick say or do, To deserve a fight with his side kick. I bet the first Batman did not have to deal with this with his Robins'.

The art will either be awsome or horrible. I see either extreme.
