Re-designing Batman and Robin

Over at The Source, DC’s official blog, are the latest two posts from Grant Morrison describing his inspirations and motivations for the new Batman and Robin series, with assorted art from Frank Quitely’s sketchbooks. I love all this behind the scenes stuff, and here you’ll see preliminary sketches of new enemies, the flying Batmobile, Damian Wayne as Robin and Dick Grayson as Batman (which is also covered by Alex Ross in his Rough Justice book). Some of the scribe’s inspirations are as wild as to be expected. Who else would take My Fair Lady as such a firm starting point?
