Bats and black cats? We Gotham right here

Allow me to be the first to drop a tasty morsel into your trick-or-treat bag...

A scrumptious comic art image. (And it's not even Friday.)

What says "Halloween" better than black cats and bats? Thank comic artists Al Rio and Geof Isherwood for bringing the two together — personified by Batman and his nemesis/seductress Catwoman — in this eerie urban tableau.

This compelling creation began life as a rough pencil sketch by Al Rio, the amazing Brazilian talent. SSTOL perennial Geof Isherwood then took Al's drawing and, in the words of Emeril Lagasse, kicked it up a few notches. To illustrate (no pun intended) the incredible contributions Geof added to the artwork, here's Al's pencil original.

A tip of the witch's hat to Al Rio's U.S. art representative, Terry Maltos, who not only gave me a nice deal on the original art, but was also kind enough to ship the drawing directly to Geof Isherwood in Montreal so that Geof could do that voodoo that he do so well.

Have a safe Halloween, and remember... the goblins will get you if you don't watch out.
