Comics Alliance has an article up written by colorist Nathan Fairbairn talking about the production of the Absolute edition of Batman Inc., and Fairbarin makes some pretty startling revelations about the plans of series artist Chris Burnham:

On Batman Incorporated, it became necessary towards the end for series artist Chris Burnham to regularly turn on the bat signal and call for help getting the thing out the door on time. Several artists, but primarily Jason Masters — a great artist and friend of Burnham’s — were enlisted to help out with anywhere from 3-6 pages of interior art per issue. Jason and the other fill-in artists were working from Burnham’s layouts and thumbnails and producing fantastic work, but, as good as Jason and the others are, they all simply draw differently from Chris, and the stylistic consistency of the book suffered. A lot of readers felt jarred out of the story by the shifting art styles (and let us know it).

And so it was with a good deal of excitement that the creative teamed learned that the series would be getting the Absolute treatment, and that there would be time and a budget to revisit the series, and for Burnham to redraw every single page that he’d needed help on.


So in other words, Burnham is "special editioning" Batman Inc., making changes to what was originally published. Well, in this case, maybe it's not such a bad idea. I mean, fans will probably appreciate consistency across the book. Let's take a look at some of the changes and see...

Good lord! This isn't going to go over well!
