Variant cover by Paul Pope for Before Watchmen: Dr. Manhattan. I have mixed feelings on the Before Watchmen project, but I absolutely love Paul Pope. Everything he does has this sense of beautiful unease and imperfection.

Batman: Year 100, written and illustrated by Paul Pope. It’s about a dystopian police state version of Gotham City in the year 2039. The story itself is quite weak compared to offerings with similar narratives, but I love the ambiguity of the actual Batman character. It’s very much along the lines of “This is a comic book, and there are things that happen in comic books that don’t need to make sense.” There’s a term for that, I think… epistemological internalism? Or maybe I just made that up. I’m running with it.
