The many variations of Lee Bermejo’s covers for Detective comicsproduced from 2020 to 2022, will soon be compiled with the original prose to form the new graphic Batman: Dark detective.

The combination of Bermejo’s evocative, ultra-realistic imagery with handwritten letters to Batman is designed to evoke a noir feel, Bermejo said. IGN. The artist, renowned for his work on graphic novels like Batman: Damned, Batman: Christmas and Jokerpointed out that the project wasn’t just a way to recycle his cover — rather, it was in his head since he started building images for the book that gave DC his company name.

“As soon as the variant cover editor at the time offered me the Detective comics concert, I knew it was an opportunity to do something different with a cover,” Bermejo said. “Detective comics is special. This is truly THE DC comic. I wanted to push something with the covers that wouldn’t necessarily be sequential but that readers could interact with and follow along as a sort of narrative. The nature of the book immediately brought to mind classic pulp imagery, a classic detective story about finding an enemy who taunts him.”


Bermejo said he was inspired by the letters of murderers like Jack the Ripper and crafted an interlocking narrative that managed to stand on its own while firmly matching the covers in the realm of “iconic imagery. of Batman, talking about the immense reach and mythology of the character, as well as the more street-level day-to-day of his life.” The overall story evolved as Bermejo’s covers were published, especially since its variants had to be at least somewhat representative of the events of each issue of Detective comics.

“The thing about a book like Detective comics, however, is that it’s a monthly title,” Bermejo said. “So there are also requirements that the book must sometimes respect the story told inside. I knew the covers wouldn’t come out in the order I wanted them to be in my story, so I had a list of concepts I had to execute… It became an exciting challenge because I had to develop the original idea as the race progressed. I have a table in my studio where I laid out the covers in order and at some point rearranged the sequences and it took on a life of its own.”


Ultimately, the final product is intended to be an intimate look at Batman’s never-ending battle against crime, and shares similarities to other experiences of pairing prose with comic book imagery. These include the 1999 classic by Alex Ross Batman: The War on Crime graphic novel and “Death Strikes at Midnight and Three” by Denny O’Neil, a hard text tale paired with comic book layouts released in the 1978s CC Special Series #15.

A giant 90m sculpture in the upper plaza of the University of Cape Town (UCT) campus has been created by a group of environmentally conscious students with the aim of raising awareness of the benefits of recycling and inspiring positive changes within the campus community.

Constructed of sheepskin, the large sculpture called “the gut” was filled with three weeks worth of UCT-contaminated waste bags and a month worth of cleaned recyclable waste.

The masterminds behind this project are three students from the Michaelis School of Fine Art, Kayleigh Cornish, Danielle du Plooy and Shahir Singh and they hope it will foster a culture of recycling and inspire change on campus.

This unique project is part of the Khusela Ikamva Sustainable Campus Project, a cross-disciplinary collaborative effort initiated to make the university a “living laboratory” and to maximize its reach and impact.

He is also described as a key catalyst in transforming the institutional fabric of UCT to reduce its environmental footprint, support the university’s environmental sustainability strategy and achieve a more sustainable campus.

A member of the group, Kayleigh Cornish, said the project was inspired by a series of photos by photographer Chris Jordon, who captured how birds consumed plastic. “From Chris’s photographs, we were inspired to create this gut full of waste and bursting in different places to illustrate and capture the violent effect of pollution on wildlife,” she said.

She added that the project aims to pique the interest of students and staff when they enter the square and provide them with a surreal and educational experience about pollution.

The director of environmental adequacy at UCT said he was impressed with the project. “Art is an important and effective way to raise awareness of our many environmental challenges. Kudos to these students for their creativity and passion which is so evident in this excellent art installation,” he said.

After he completes his course, the students said contaminated waste will be returned to UCT and recyclable waste will be recycled. The sheepskin will be washed and donated to the UCT Art Department to be used as scrap fabric for cleaning.

New association introducing young people to art

Art in Motion, a new non-profit working under the umbrella of the Coalition of Charities, is reaching out to local youth and families with the goal of bringing the joy of creativity to community members.

Art in Motion is based out of the Life 360 ​​Resource Center on Lincoln Avenue in Monett, but director Janessa Moore said most of the work he does currently takes place at the Monett Farmers Market, which runs from 8 am to noon each Saturday at the Jerry D. Hall Memorial Pavilion in Downtown Glen and Sharon Garrett Park on Front Street in Monett.

“We have all kinds of arts and crafts that we do at Farmers Market for kids and families,” Moore said. “Our mission is to stimulate art and artists of all kinds and to bring the therapeutic value of art to the community.”

At the Farmers Market, Art in Motion focuses on recycling and nature-inspired crafts for kids and families.

“We encourage people to look at the world around them and see what they can use,” Moore said.

At the first Farmer’s Market of the year on May 7, Art in Motion invited local youth to recycle small containers into decorated flowerpots.

Moore also said that Art in Motion hosted two different selfie stations for attendees.

Moore also said that Art in Motion hosts a rock painting station and encourages residents to flex their creative muscles to create natural painted works of art that she hopes could lead to an artistic movement in Monett.

“We want to rock this town with rock painting,” Moore said. “We would love to start seeing these rocks around town, in people’s planters or outside businesses. Eventually, we’re going to get QR codes so people can find out where these painted rocks are. »

Going forward, Moore said Art in Motion plans to hold a series of community workshops to keep the artistic imagination sparking in Monett.

“We just thought Monett needed some sunshine,” Moore said.

Parents and children enjoyed books, songs and arts activities at Malibu Bluffs Park last month to celebrate Earth Day.

Park Tales is a fun and educational program for the whole family. Children and their caregivers listened to stories told by the Malibu Library Children’s Librarian, created an art activity and enjoyed a free snack.

The Malibu Community Services Department, in partnership with the Malibu Library, offered a month of outdoor activities that the whole family could participate in.

Amy Trulock, librarian at Malibu Outreach, said the event went well outside.

“It’s a beautiful day to celebrate Earth Day and hear stories about our Earth and do a recycling art project with these families and this family can get out and work together with the parks and the library,” said said Trulock. “Holding events outside is a great way to come together and get back to normal.”

Jessie Schweit works at the Westlake Village Children’s Library and reads to children at the Park Tales event in Malibu on April 21.

After reading, singing and dancing, a craft table awaited the children to stick, glue and create.

Parent and Calabasas resident Johanna Domenig and her 3-year-old daughter Gigi attended the Parks Tale event. Domenig knows Malibu well having grown up near Zuma Beach.

“We come every month when the library has these events and we look forward to getting out and being part of the community,” Domenig said. “We are truly grateful that the events are returning now and we look forward to many more.”

The next Spring Park Tales will take place on Thursday, May 26 starting at 10 a.m. at Malibu Bluffs Park. For more information visit, malibucity.org/calendar.

Electronic Waste Collections Aspen May 21

The City of Aspen will be hosting a free e-waste collection event from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on May 21 at the Marolt Housing Complex parking lot at 100 Marolt Place in Aspen.

Electronic waste is almost anything that has a plug or battery, including computers, printers, televisions, and cell phones. Electronic waste is not smoke detectors, batteries or mercury bulbs. Other materials not eligible for collection include refrigerators, major appliances, air conditioners, thermostats, smoke/CO2 detectors, batteries, light bulbs, or any item containing hazardous chemicals.

The event is free and open to those interested in recycling personal e-waste. Participants are asked to remain in their vehicle while staff assist with collection.



Corporate e-waste will not be accepted at this event, but may be recycled for a fee at the Pitkin County Landfill. More information at aspen.gov/ewaste.

Get ready for drag queen bingo

AspenOUT and the Aspen Art Museum will kick off Pride Month on June 5 with a drag queen bingo brunch starting at 10 a.m. at The Rooftop Café (637 E. Hyman Ave.).



Mariam T, a San Diego-based drag queen and iconic personality for Aspen Gay Ski Week, will host the fundraising event.

“We are thrilled to celebrate Pride Month with this fundraising brunch,” said AspenOUT Producer Kim Kuliga. “Every year, Mariam T delights the crowds at Aspen Gay Ski Week, and we’re lucky to have her back this summer to support the Aspen Art Museum and AspenOUT.”

Aspen Rooftop Café will offer a variety of food, cocktails and mimosas. Tickets are $160 and include brunch, cocktails, and three bingo games with prizes from local businesses. All net proceeds benefit AAM and AspenOUT.

Feedback sought for future Burlingame daycare

The city is seeking community input to help inform design direction for the Burlingame Early Childhood Education Center.

“Anyone interested in providing feedback on design preferences is encouraged to complete the survey,” says Shirley Ritter, Director of Kids First. “The survey results will help the project team gather baseline information to create a successful, community-focused early childhood education program in Burlingame.”

The survey is available on Aspen Community Voice website (www.aspencommunityvoice.com) until May 22.

Now underway, the initial design phase of the project runs through August. The initial objective is to bring together groups of stakeholders, provide information about the project and conduct the survey. Simultaneously, the project team will conduct interviews and gather initial information before the designers work on the building design and site plan. The team will apply this information to conceptual design options in June. When a schematic site program is established in July, the plan will go through the public approval process.

Yesteryear Village at South Florida Fairgrounds is a history-driven hidden gem located on the western end of West Palm Beach. Although we have been to the fairground several times, we had no idea it was there! We could have stayed for hours exploring all the different homes and shops, all focused on showcasing life in Florida before 1940. You really feel like you’ve been transported to another era. Plus the volunteer staff are so knowledgeable and friendly it really adds to the experience. It’s a great way to explore history with kids in a hands-on way.

Colfax K-8 in Pittsburgh’s Squirrel Hill will be closed through Friday due to a spike in covid-19 cases, school district officials said.

The school closed on Tuesday after covid-19 cases exceeded the school’s 5% threshold for closing, sanitizing and masking.

As of Monday, there were 33 cases among Colfax students and staff in the previous 14 days, representing at least 5% of the building’s students and staff, according to the Pittsburgh Public Schools Dashboard.

No one can enter the Beechwood Boulevard school building until Friday to allow time for cleaning and disinfecting. All events and activities are canceled until the end of the week.

When the building reopens, students, staff and visitors will be required to wear masks until May 23, officials said.

Pittsburgh CAPA 6-12 closed Monday for three days as covid-19 cases exceeded the 5% threshold. The downtown Pittsburgh school will remain closed through Friday and face masks will be required through May 20.

Both schools operate via distance learning.

The rise in cases comes about a week after Pittsburgh Public Schools dropped their mask mandate — one of the last districts in the region to do so.

Masks for the most part will remain optional as long as Allegheny County remains at a low level for the spread of covid-19, as per federal guidelines.

The original proposal called for reinstating the mandatory masking policy if the county reached the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s benchmark for high level of covid spread. Council member Jamie Piotrowski offered to restore it if the county reached a moderate level of covid spread, and the council passed his amendment by a 5-3 vote.

The sculptor who created a statue of Marjorie Tallchief, which was stolen and cut up, plans to fix it with the parts found so far by police. The parts were in two recycling centers, where a batch sold for $260. The police did not identify the seller.

The six pieces recovered so far are not the complete statue. Sculptor Gary Henson takes stock of what remains to be worked on.

“As we don’t know if we will still have the other hand, and the feet, one is mutilated and the other is missing. I can do it again, and now I’m going to do it from pieces, and you can’t tell it was cut when I’m done.

The statue, on the grounds of the Tulsa Historical Society and part of a larger “Five Moons” ballerina exhibit, was bent until it came off the base, then removed and cut into pieces. The other statues were not damaged. As a precaution, it is planned to move them all further from the road, and on higher pedestals.

Henson said the value of the statue is what it represents and the finished piece, not the pieces.

“Together in one piece is worth a lot of money, but just like that, it’s not worth much.”

Some of the repairs will take place at his teaching studio in Chelsea at the Boys & Girls Club. Henson works there on most projects, and he wants the kids in his art class to see the statue reforming. He was shocked that years after he was exposed, he was caught. Henson estimated it would take 18 months to repair the statue.
