The late, great Don Newton's comic art for Batman is pretty well known, but here's an acrylics composition of his showing off a slightly different style! It's very evocative of early Year One Bats. I suspect that this was done in the years before Don started working at DC, since I've seen similar paintings showing Namor and the Alan Scott version of Green Lantern that he did in 1969 and 1970 for fanzines. The vast majority of Don's early work when he was primarily involved in comics as a fan illustrator rather than a professional has been sold off in auctions for a pretty penny nowadays. Fun fact: Don was a fanzine artist for years before finally finding employ at Charleston Comics in 1974, and the fact that he lived in Arizona, rather than in NYC where DC and Marvel were located, was one of the major issues preventing his employ. Nevertheless, he didn't give up, and eventually became a legend!

This is the time that Batman "died" at the hands of the Electrocutioner, from Detective Comics issue 645. Tim Drake finds Bruce's body in the sewers after the Electrocutioner zaps him with some high voltage lightning. Tim springs into action, beats the stuffing out of Lester Buchinsky and forces him to jumpstart Batman's heart! Afterwards, Bruce is all stubborn about getting back out on the streets (Alfred's comment about clinical vs. biological death is kinda amusing) but eventually Tim convinces him to take it easy. We also get one of those "awww, Bruce is proud of child soldier number 3" moments! Anyhow, this is all interesting because the Electrocutioner is an extremely low tier Batman villain (and former vigilante, as he was in this book) but he technically succeeded in "killing" Bats! Not bad for a guy who got punched in the face once in Arkham Origins and dropped like a sack of bricks. (Art by Tom Lyle and Scott Hanna, script by Chuck Dixon.)
