The Exquisite Expressiveness of Kelley Jones' Batman

Over-developed musculature:





Distended limbs and necks:










Massively painful physical assaults:




Incredibly complex Batcave equipment:








Flowing, billowing capes:












Strangely ribbed capes:













Long, long, long capes:











Which sometimes act as panel borders:




Moody, occasionally amusing poses and expressions:












With bat-ears that sometimes point backwards for increased sleekness:





Sexy ladies:






An especially overgrown take on Swamp Thing:





A grotesque, contortionist take on Deadman:






Occasional little floating bats:




And finally, an old-timey flashback Batman:
