finally the ultimate Bog---a grail piece if ever there was one. I don't think anything I can say could possibly do justice to this piece of art. Arthur Adams has been synonymous with greatness for so long, but this one just takes the cake. The gargoyle...the bat...the few extra characters Art snuck in...perfection if evver there was such a thing

Excellent! I like the fact that you get Art drawing superheroes, good girl art, and a monster (gargoyle with a machine gun in its mouth!) all in one piece! That's just great. Thanks for sharing.

There are many things to admire in this amazing piece, but I mostly like that the gargoyle is actually the main character, that it's a huge bat and that it seems to be drawn to perform its proper function: dripstone! :-)

Whats left to say???? I think you ARE the NO 1 Batman collector Ari - this piece is AH-MAZ-ING!!!! They detail is beyond a simple commission - it is cover quality. Loving the Bat gargoyle and the cheeky catwoman hiding underneth is great. A Bat on a Bat above a Cat!!!!

It's rare a piece makes you do a double take, but even rare when one makes you do a triple or quadruple take. I really hope this gets published some day. What a grail indeed. Congrats!

The crown jewel, my friend. I, too, am left speechless. I find this to be simultaneously exhilirating and mesmerizing. The swooping cape and engulfing gargoyle wings create such an elegant flow to the composition. Truly majestic, sir!

Ari, there is SO much to see and comment on but I have no idea where to begin. It's definitely a crown jewel in your collection of BoG and to even think about topping it would be foolish. It's in a class all by itself. Huge Congrats. :)
