Here’s my fifth Batman commission: Damian Wayne, Batman.

I confess I, like many, wasn’t a big fan of Damian Wayne when I first encountered him in Grant Morrisson’s Batman. He was brash, snarky, and altogether annoying. However, over time he came to grow on me as I realized that he’s only a miniature version of his old man. He’s now one of my favourite new characters of the last decade.

This Batman costume was from an Andy Kubert design for a story based in a future when Bruce Wayne had died and his son succeeded him as Gotham’s protector. I frankly don’t like the design much but maybe it’ll grow on me as well.
