Batman and Madman



I am a huge Mike Allred fan, his art style is at once modern and retro. I knew that any cover with his most popular creation would have to be reflective of the innovation that he brings to his stories. This was one of the most fun times I have had making one of these.

These six pieces by Allred were originally intended to Community Chest cards be for a DC Universe themed Monopoly game. The game was never released, so this great art has never been seen by the public - until now, so enjoy:

Since I see that N is coming up is Nightman going to be among them? I thought that it would be a great team up when he was published.

I never really followed the character. Was he a Malibu character? I do remember some God-awful TV show called Nightman and I think that soured me to the idea of trying the comic.

these allred monopoly sketches are awesome. are there anymore (the flash, etc)?

Ross said...

These were the only ones I saw for sale when I purchased them on Ebay, but I bet some more exist out there. I'd love to see them too!

Rick said...

I think it was Malibu. I actually liked the TV show.

Also, I like how Batman turns in the last panel. It looks like he actually hears Madman.

I'd love to see Allred draw Captain Marvel!

Ross said...

He'd be a perfect choice for that character!

FYI, that Monopoly game was released. I have it.

Ross said...

Cool! I'd love to see more scans of his work from it!

A friend of mine showed me that cards from the Monopoly game and the images have all been re-drawn by another artist. So, while the game was indeed released, this art never was. I wonder why they did not use the far superior Allred art?
