Art Therapy: "Batman: Hush" Coloring Book (Part 5 of 104)

At one point, I was mulling over coloring the cover to this book, which is partially in black & white, but I think I would need to apply markers to that surface texture. This page shows how I would've colored it.

This shot reminds me of Batman's grand entrance in part 1 of Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns, only instead of swooping down, Jim Lee's Batman swings across, like Spider-Man on his webs, or an homage to his first appearance on the cover of Detective Comics. With crayons, the only chance at a 2nd chance with a coloring book page would be if you bought two copies, but I could imagine coloring Batman in a black and grey suit with purple gloves..
