Check Out The Cover For Batman & Robin #6 By Frank Quitely

Posted by G-Man (37640 posts) - - Show Bio

I love seeing Frank Quitely's art.  DC has shared a peak at the cover to Batman And Robin #6.  There's a new villain making his way to Gotham.  According to DC, he's a deadly villain going by the name of..."The Flamingo."   He just might become Batman's "most dangerous, psychopathic, muderous foe."
 
Guess we'll have to see more of him in action in order to see just how dangerous he can be.

I really liked the backstory they were setting up for the Flamingo. That's certainly a cool cover

Lol that's great! 
 
I love Quitely's Art and this is my fav book out there right now.  
The lead up to this guy's arrival has been well done and I can't wait to learn more about him and just delve into the character. I can't wait to see what he is like and how he fights or just interacts with Dick and Damien.  
Another New Batman Villain developed by Grant Morrison= Soo excitinggg!

"They seek him here, and they seek him there, His clothes are loud, but never square."    I believe Flamingo's a dedicated follower of fashion.  No one gets the reference--*crickets*. 
 
Like Batman and Robin don't have enough problems trying to de-bunk any accusations about their sexuality as it is they get trounced by this guy?  Who also has a whip?  
  
Two words for Flamingo:  "I'm Faaaaaaaaabbbbbuuuuuuuulllllllooooouuuuuuutttttthhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"  All puns strongly intended.

He looks FAaaaaBULOUS!!
 
The artist's name, "Frank Quietly". That's one of those situations where you wonder, "Is that his real name?". Looking at the comparison of this cover to that Purple Rain poster. It makes me wonder if this guy is DC's Greg Land. Though, Land does that stuff all the time. I'm unfamiliar with this person's work. Far as I know he could be doing that just for laughs this once.

Nope, it's Vince... something.  I've forgotten again.  I'm sure he's a nice guy, but he's too slow and makes all his characters look like they've been beaten with several ugly sticks.

That guy is a fierce villain.The weird thing is Dick and Damian don't even look like they have been fighting...I think they just partied too hard.
They like to party all the time, party all the time!

I walk away for two seconds and come back to see Batman's new arch-villain is a flimsy matador holding a bullwhip looking like some reject from a "Purple Rain" album cover?
Seriously????

I've just never been into the smarmy, feminine villain thing. It barely works in James Bond movies and hardly translates into comics.  They just can't hold their own. I can't think of one villain that's an exception.

I have no clue how to feel about this.

Batman's mouth is hanging open in a really awkward way...

Beat me to it! The cover is definitely an homage to that.

@Ectoplasmic: If it makes you feel better he eats peoples' faces and seems quite deranged.
#21 Posted by Ectoplasmic (81 posts) - - Show Bio
@Archetype:
I wish that did make me feel better but if anything it only adds to the awkwardness... Pink jacket AND he eats meat? Yeah... It's a sign of the times. Jesus must be coming back.

First a very ginger jason now this! I wonder if Flaaaamingo will show up in any book but Morrisons.lol I seriously doubt it, I swear is it possible for him to write a story where he's not introducing the worstest villian EVER ( he swears) and or changing the status quo? I bet he was pretty good at playing opposite day as a kid.

looks rather good actually - loving frank quietlys art as well. no doubt the guy is queer. his only way of being 'dangerous' is by a motorbike and whip - hmm ?

1. Probably cause you havent read it and are unwilling to accept change.
2. Quitely is a brilliant artist. A little rough, but still good. much better than Phillip Tan at least.
3. Bringing Bruce back too soon will just make everything going on now pointless and embarassing. he will come back at the right time.
 
anyway, Sweet cover!!

Did you read #5?  LOL 
 
After seeing the murderous scene that was in #5, I'm psyched to check this issue out!  CAN'T WAIT! 
 
With that said...don't know how I feel about the cover.  It doesn't feel like a cover, really.
