Batman art page from issue 6 - by Greg Capullo

DC COMICS April 2012 cover date (went on sale Feb 15 2012)

Inks by Jonathan Glapion

Capullo's heavy blacking is within the traditional Batman imagery, but is done here with more the the usual precision (inks are by Jonathan Glapion). See the cross-hatching and the strokes that indicate both texture and greys? These are classic illustrator techniques that have existed for hundreds of years (longer if you include woodblock images dating well back toward the 10th century) being carried forward by comic book artists. The power of comic books to include ancient techniques and to absorb new developments is part of the mediums power (and flexibility).
