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:
