Batman reimagined as a 1970s grindhouse flick

Francesco Francavilla's Batman 1972 illustrations take the Dark Knight back to the 1970s, where he chainsmokes and does business with a mustached Commissioner Gordon. It's Batsploitation!

Francavilla says he also has a story pitch to go with these images, something he thinks would make a cool Elseworlds book. For now, you can see more of his Batman and Catwoman, plus a Riddler in a fur-lined coat at his blog.
