I think the title on the front should be a solid color maybe something like Batman -gold- Batman Returns -white- Batman Forever -green or blue- Batman & Robin -red-

Since i've decided to wait for the eventual re-issues, I have no clue...but is the font the same for all four movies?

Also, if it was up to me [which it's not ], i'd get rid of the title on the front and just leave the logo...

Looks good though.

What about putting Christopher Walken (as Max Shreck) on the Batman Returns spine -- seeing how his character consumed a great portion of the movie.

Great covers!

You're basically doing a concept I tried to do last year but never got around to completing it. They're great so far, but I have three thoughts...

Leave the text off of the covers. Let the logos do the work. This is why the first teaser poster for Batman was so powerful, and why that basic design was repeated over the four films.

The font is not the same for all of the movies (I'm sure you already know this). The font you've used was for the last two, while the first and second films had unique fonts. I think you should get the originals on the covers somewhere, spine or back, via scanning and cleaning up.

The spines look too busy with the text, photos and logo. Since you're using those pics on the back, perhaps you could drop them from the spines?

Like I said - great stuff. Looking forward to seeing the finished set.

ok, the reason i chose that font was basically because I wanted to choose a consistant font for the whole series... I tried using another one but "Batman Forever" and "Batman & Robin" looked awful as anything else... so i dropped it...

And yes, I am going to drop the text on the front but I like the sides the way they are and am not changing them...

And I tried to add christopher walken into the design of the 2nd but I couldnt find any promotional shots featuring him... and when I got a screencap from the dvd, it just didnt look right... I dont know...

I agree with you on the spines Jason, they look great the way they are. I like my "series" covers to really match & this set does that.

I agree with removing the text off the front of the covers. Other than that, they look fantastic! Look forward to printing 'em!

(Better buy a new black cartridge...heh)

Cool. But where's Batman & Robin?


It appears as though he's still working on it.

I like these revised versions a lot. You do some outstanding work. Keep it up!

(BTW Darth, I had to look twice at your smily face. At first I thought he was nauseated and vomiting, then I realized he was drooling with anticipation. I was going to say that I didn't think the titles on the front were that bad...lol)

Thanks again...

If anything, I think you shoud redo the spines in antcipation of possible two-disc releases of SEs.
