Batman is a character very close to DC Comics writer David Finch. Of the bat hero, he has said: “He’s very driven and black and white. I love that in a world of so much grey he can cut through it with so much clarity. Right or wrong, he never has to question. And there’s something very engaging about a character that pushes his limits and never surrenders. There are so many variables and possibilities in a story, but you always know what Batman will do.” We’re guessing that back in the ’80s, a similar sentiment propelled writer Frank Miller to ink the now-iconic comic Batman: The Dark Knight Returns.
In a statue depiction of Bruce Wayne’s life in crime-ridden Gotham City after he reverses his decision to retire, the comic-book series Batman: The Dark Knight Returns is highlighted for its macabre yet good-guy-championing aesthetic. As this series sees Batman’s psyche developed and explored amidst the gloomy background of evil and misdoing, there’s always at least a sliver of hopeful light at the side seams. Capture this feeling with this stunning “Call to Arms” statue, which sees Batman mounted on a bucking, black steed to honor the Year of the Horse.
